Barack Obama made history in 2008 when he became the nation's first African American president. His victory stood on the shoulders of black freedom fighters throughout history, but what has his presence meant for black America as we march towards the 2012 presidential election?

In its first book project, the Pacifica Radio Archives has teamed up with City Lights Books to produce Redefining Black Power: Reflections on the State of Black America. With contributions from Michelle Alexander (The New Jim Crow), Van Jones (former White House Green advisor and President of 'Rebuild The Dream') and Dr Vincent Harding (founder of Veterans of Hope and script writer for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ), Redefining Black Power addresses some of the key issues for black america; mass incarceration, media portrayal, the role of black leadership, democratic participation and economic disparity.
