about

The Congress of African People (CAP) was an important Black Power organization formed in 1970 and led by the activist poet Amiri Baraka. It made significant contributions to the Black Liberation Movement throughout the 70s as a leading organization in the National Black Political Convention, the National Black Assembly, African Liberation Day, the African Liberation Support Committee and the Black Women's United Front. CAP also became active in the new communist movement as the Revolutionary Communist League (MLM). This first-hand narrative of CAP is a part of a movement to document and analyze Black Power in the African American Freedom Movement from the 1950s through the 1970s.

Michael Simanga holds a doctorate in African American Studies from the Union Institute and University, USA and teaches in the Department of African American Studies at Georgia State University. He is the author of the novel In the Shadow of the Son (1998) and co-editor of 44 on 44 (2011).
