This is a black and white poster that published their protest's demands and date on November 22, 1969. The text explains how six black women were being held in against their will, tortured, and oppressed because they had been deemed, "unfit mothers". This poster shares how these people weren't just sitting around, but they weren't "fighting" as in battles and war, so I would say they were cooperating among themselves to incorporate the change they desired. These six women were wrongfully convicted with no trial according to the flyer, and this protest stood up for not only the injustice to black people, but to any woman too. The cooperation within the constraints of the law, peacefully, without hurting anybody. I felt this piece adds to this presentation because it doesn't just address unfair treatment of African-Americans, it includes how people stood up to the mistreatment of women too.
"Mississippi Goddam" by Nina Simone Recording session: Live in Antibes, July 24-25, 1965. The sixth Antibes Juan-les-Pins Jazz Festival took place from July" Mississippi Goddam represents how diverse ways of opposing hateful, racist events that occurred during the black power movement era. This song was written after the offenses afflicted onto black people when racists took measures against them. Although, this is cooperating because Nina Simone didn't hurt anyone or anything by writing and performing this song. I felt this protest song was important to include because of how the composer was reacting to Medgar Evers's murder and the Alabama Church Bombing.
"Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around" is a protest song that the Steve Miller Band released in their 1969 album, "Your Saving Grace". This song was commonly sung during marches, protests, and other methods of standing up to racial bias. This song demonstrates how these peoples knew exactly who they were standing up against if you listen to the lyrics, the police officer, politician, and army general try to "turn you around". They cooperated within the restraints of the law while standing up against it by showing the peoples' resistance from a variety of angles. I felt this song was important to include because of how it represents that people opposed injustice from multiple facets.
This photograph of a boycott flyer released in the summer of 1966 in Harlem, a neighborhood in Manhattan, New York, demonstrates how the Black Power Movement rebelled against the confines of segregation and injustice, by standing up for equality and leadership positions in their community. Through a boycott, they cooperated within themselves while abiding the law. (Excepting being truant.) I felt this issue was important to include because it shows a way the black community stood up for power over their own education.
