Samurai Among Panthers - Richard Aoki on Race, Resistance, and a Paradoxical Life
By Diane C. Fujino
An iconic figure of the Asian American movement, Richard Aoki (1938-2009) was also, as the most prominent non-Black member of the Black Panther Party, a key architect of Afro-Asian solidarity in the 1960s and '70s. His life story exposes the personal side of political activism as it illuminates the history of ethnic nationalism and radical internationalism in America. Paper: 496 pp.
