Black Awakening in Capitalist America is a classic study of the Black liberation movement of the 1960s. Examining Black Power and black capitalism, the student and radical movements, nationalists and integrationists, Allen argues that Black America, hemmed in by racism, constitutes an underdeveloped, domestic colony within the United States. Black Power was an expression of black nationalism and the thrust toward black self-determination. Allen suggests that corporate America responded with neo-colonial tactics of cooptation and repression that seriously undermined the movement.

Black Awakening in Capitalist America is essential reading to understand the origins and development of the contemporary black struggle for freedom.
