The IBW's Independence and Reorganization
This chapter looks at the separation between the IBW and the Martin Luther King Center. The King Center leadership was frustrated at the IBW's consultations with Black intellectuals who held a variety of ideological perspectives. In the IBW's first months in existence, Harding and other leaders began an ambitious publishing plan and met with Black Nationalists, such as Stokely Carmichael, and Caribbean radicals, such as Robert Hill and C.L.R. James. The IBW's refusal to abide by the King Center's narrow civil-rights framework led the organization to choose independence. Its new perspective meant reorganizing itself into an activist think tank.
