5.0 out of 5 stars Who Will Survive America? 18 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
This album is an important document that needs to be heard. What is a shame is that it is restricted to a single CD. Many of the tracks are excerpts from speeches by some of the most important Afro-Americans from the time and of the music, there was so much more that could have been added... But then this would be taking an affordable piece of social document in to the realms of the collector-only box set. As it stands, this album is a gem with some exceptionally rare material standing alongside some more familiar names. The 'whitey' of the title was the American establishment - the politicians, police, prison guards, judges, businessmen - that sought to oppress Afro Americans and tried to drag America back into slavery. To emphasise the fact that 'whitey' wasn't a reference to anyone pink-skinned, the album includes some key recordings by white artists. British-born folk singer Roy Harper is there with his 'I Hate The White Man' as is Bob Dylan's 'George Jackson' - a song about a man who was murdered by prison guards at San Quentin.

People need to know just what that Black Power message was, and while this music may be over forty years old, the message is just as valid today. That same 'whitey' is still in control - in the USA and in Britain - and there are still those out there that try to oppress and control others. This is an important album in carrying that message forward. Buy it for yourself, play it for your kids.

Terrible title. how can people talk about racism and unity with a title like that? It doesnt matter if some people think its a fun word to throw about, its racism.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Key Word Is Listen 8 Mar 2012
By Donald S. Handy - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's interesting and amusing that someone prejudged this collection before he even heard it. The title comes from a Folkways album, which documented black commentaries on both the jailing of Huey Newton, as well as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Still, if anyone is offended by putting a "y" after the word "white," then they're well advised to steer clear of this, even though the "N-word" is used far more often than any insults such as "cracker."

What this album does is document a different time, when black people were first feeling the freedom to express their anger and pride. A time when radicals spelled "America" with three k's instead of a c, and police were regularily referred-to as "pigs" by the same.

The anger wasn't just expressed by black people alone, as songs by white performers are included, most notably the rare single "George Jackson," by Bob Dylan. I admit that this one song's inclusion is the reason why I purchased this, and the rest of the collection makes me glad that I did. Back to the point, however, perhaps the most audacious title is "I Hate The White Man," which is written and performed by a white Englishman, Roy Harper. (It's an anti-imperialist song.)

Fans of rap music will enjoy discovering some of it's roots in this collection. Fans of Ani DiFranco will enjoy the Marlena Shaw track, "Woman Of The Ghetto." Fans of the late great Gil Scott-Heron will marvel at the rendition of "Winter In America." And anyone interested in the radical politics of the late '60s/early '70s, especially as it relates to the black power movement, will enjoy this collection immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Inflammatory about the title 28 Feb 2012
By Outsiderny - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Unlike others, this was not a word used to suppress or control since the American Black population at the time were in no position to do either... unlike 'whitey' who made the rules and broke them when he saw fit. At the time.

The CD is a must for anyone interested in the time and the times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting combination of Black Power speeches with politically charged music from the 60's 25 April 2013
By Alan Mills - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Black Power. In the 60’s, as the struggle for civil rights continued in the deep south, the struggle began tomignite in northern cities. this shift in geography was accompanied by a shift in tactics. Tactics previously focused on peaceful non-violence shifted to a focus on black pride, and the demands for political and economic power.

This new movement found expression in speeches by some of the great orators of the movement, from Malcolm X to Eldridge Cleaver. It was also reflected in popular music, ranging from jazz to Motown.

This disc alternates between excerpts from these speeches and music.

Some of the musical selections are pretty obscure, and others are right on. Since they were chosen for the theme, they don't really form a coherent set, and are of mixed quality. Many of the speeches are available elsewhere.

Nonetheless, hearing the speeches, puts the music in context, and provides an important document of a movement which changed the face of America.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dated 1 Jan 2013
By JazzFan - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most of these songs weren't very interesting when they could have been relevant. 40 years later they exhibit how hatred and oppression breed hatred in return. Thankfully, many of these were dismissed as being on the fringe and we put our efforts into progress rather than spew hate and vitriol.

This is an interesting and historical collection that could have been great with a more balanced (and better) selection of music from that time.
