Heartbeat of Struggle - The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama (Paperback): Diane C. Fujino Heartbeat of Struggle - The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama (Paperback)

On February 12, 1965, in the Audubon Ballroom, Yuri Kochiyama cradled Malcolm X in her arms as he died, but her role as a public servant and activist began much earlier than this pivotal public moment. Heartbeat of Struggle is the first biography of this courageous woman, the most prominent Asian American activist to emerge during the 1960s. Based on extensive archival research and interviews with Kochiyama's family, friends, and the subject herself, Diane C. Fujino traces Kochiyama's life from an "all-American" childhood to her achievements as a tireless defender of - and fighter for - human rights. Raised by a Japanese immigrant family in California during the 1920s and 1930s, Kochiyama was active in sports, school, and church. She was both unquestioningly patriotic and largely unconscious of race and racism in the United States. After Pearl Harbor, however, Kochiyama's family was among the thousands of Japanese Americans forcibly removed to internment camps for the duration of the war, a traumatic experience that opened her eyes to the existence of social injustice. After the war, Kochiyama moved to New York. It was in the context of the vibrant Black movement in Harlem in the 1960s that she began her activist career. There, she met Malcolm X, who inspired her radical political development and the ensuing four decades of incessant work for Black liberation, Asian American equality, Puerto Rican independence, and political prisoner defense. Kochiyama is widely respected for her work in forging unity among diverse communities, especially between Asian and African Americans. Fujino, a scholar and activist, offers an in-depth examination of Kochiyama's political awakening, rich life, andimpressive achievements with particular attention to how her public role so often defied gender, racial, and cultural norms. Heartbeat of Struggle is a source of inspiration and guidance for anyone committed to social change.

Wicked Theory, Naked Practice - A Fred Ho Reader (Paperback): Fred Ho Wicked Theory, Naked Practice - A Fred Ho Reader (Paperback)

For more than three decades, Fred Ho has been a radical artist and activist. As a composer and baritone saxophonist, he is famed for creating a new music that fuses Asian and African traditions. The influence of the Black Power and Black Arts movements during his coming of age inspired him to become one of the leading radical Asian American activist-artists. Ho's passions for art and justice have always been linked-his music seeks to express his politics and his activism has injected revolution into his art. Wicked Theory, Naked Practice is a groundbreaking collection of Ho's writings, speeches, and interviews of the past three decades on topics ranging from Mao to Coltrane, from Sun Ra to selling out, and from fighting oppression to battling cancer. His work insists on connections among creative and artistic processes, political theorization, and activist organizing. As Robin D. G. Kelley says in the foreword, "Ho writes, speaks, and plays in order to persuade and inspire, to expose the crimes of the ruling class, and to challenge the status quo so that we imagine a different future." Through Wicked Theory, Naked Practice, Ho's contributions merge political and cultural theory, shedding new light on the radical movements of the 1960s and 1970s and revealing the fascinating story behind a prolific and politically engaged artist across all genres.

Samurai among Panthers - Richard Aoki on Race, Resistance, and a Paradoxical Life (Paperback): Diane C. Fujino Samurai among Panthers - Richard Aoki on Race, Resistance, and a Paradoxical Life (Paperback)
Diane C. Fujino
R611 R559 Discovery Miles 5 590 Save R52 (9%) Out of stock

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. A reflection of this interconnection, Samurai among Panthers weaves together two narratives: Aoki's dramatic first-person chronicle and an interpretive history by a leading scholar of the Asian American movement, Diane C. Fujino. Aoki's candid account of himself takes us from his early years in Japanese American internment camps to his political education on the streets of Oakland, to his emergence in the Black Panther Party. As his story unfolds, we see how his parents' separation inside the camps and his father's illegal activities shaped the development of Aoki's politics. Fujino situates his life within the context of twentieth-century history-World War II, the Cold War, and the protests of the 1960s. She demonstrates how activism is both an accidental and an intentional endeavor and how a militant activist practice can also promote participatory democracy and social service. The result of these parallel voices and analysis in Samurai among Panthers is a complex-and sometimes contradictory-portrait of a singularly extraordinary activist and an expansion and deepening of our understanding of the history he lived.
