The Making of Black Revolutionaries

Illustrated Edition

This eloquent and provocative autobiography, originally published in 1972, records a day by day, sometimes hour by hour, compassionate account of the events that took place in the streets, meetings, churches, jails, and in people's hearts and minds in the 1960s civil rights movement.


"An important documentary autobiography by a man who became one of the most important black leaders in the struggle for civil rights and freedom, this volume is moving, dramatic, at times almost overwhelming."—Library Journal

"A searing, jolting document that will leave the reader full of that savage indignation that tears the heart."—New York Times

"Acrid and eloquent. . . . this memoir draws on Forman's experience as a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee."—Publishers Weekly


"James Forman's The Making of Black Revolutionaries is a classic, a personal, no holds barred inside look at the civil rights movement. Written by an insider, it offers an invaluable look at the politics and the personalities that shaped the movement and continue to shape American life."—Julian Bond, Julian Bond

"The Making of Black Revolutionaries was the most ambitious, politically astute, and emotionally engrossing memoir to emerge from the 1960s. Anyone interested in understanding the present state of Black politics should read this outstanding example of engaged historical analysis."—Clayborne Carson, Stanford University
