- KurzbeschreibungFor almost four decades, William Sherrill was a critical leader of Marcus Garvey&8217;s Universal Negro Improvement Association(UNIA) and a leading African American intellectual and activist in 1930s and 1940s Detroit. But until now, Sherrill&8217;s leadership and activism has never been detailed. As the first biography of Sherrill, this book examines him as part of a historical tradition from which post-World War II Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism re-emerged. Sherrill represents a bridge between the African American self-determination of the1920s and 1930s and African American activism from the 1950s through the 1960s. This book explains how Sherrill carried the UNIA and Garveyism into the post-war period andemphasizes the enduring traditions of African American self-determination, race-based institution building, economic and political empowerment, and cultural centering from the1910s through the 1960s. The story of William Sherrill re-conceptualizes the study of Garvey, Garveyism, and the UNIA.<br> This book would be ideal for upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level courses in African American history, the Civil Rights Movement, Black freedom struggle, Black liberation, Black nationalism, pan-Africanism, Detroit history, urban history,and urban studies.
