Abstract

This book attempts a colossal task: exploring the breadth of African American thought and action on nuclear weapons and its links with movements of anti-colonialism, civil rights, Black power, peace, and a host of other issues. By examining the attitudes and activities of influential Black activists and thinkers in opposing nuclear weapons, Intondi hopes to develop "a larger narrative that challenges the idea that the black freedom struggle was an isolated movement in a narrowly defined set of years" (3). This exclusive focus on anti-nuclear activism provides a much-needed addition to the small but growing scholarship on those who opposed nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War and beyond.
