About this product
- DescriptionMuch has been written about black urban empowerment and about the candidates who are the public face of such shifts in power. Authors invariably mention the important role played by black political organizations in electing black officials or organizing communities, but this study makes one such organization the focus of a booklength study. Using interviews and observation of participants as well as archival research, Kubic offers historical and political analysis of Freedom, Inc. of Kansas City from its founding in 1962 through its role in municipal elections of 2007. Kubic asserts that strong local organizations are living, dynamic organisms and that they, rather than charismatic candidates or interracial alliances, are the crucial players in both determining political outcomes and advancing black interests in urban areas.
- Author BiographyMicah W. Kubic is currently the director of Planning, Development, and Evaluation at the Full Employment Council in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Prior to joining FEC, Kubic worked for Greater Kansas City LISC, in municipal government, and on dozens of political campaigns.
