Interview with Bob Mants
QUESTION 1
CARROLL BLUE:

OK, Bob, first question I have for you is what we were talking about, can you describe Black Power and how it happened. I know you were saying it's something that came by the seat of the pants.

BOB MANTS:

The, describe Black Power?

CARROLL BLUE:

Mm-hmm, what it means.

BOB MANTS:

Oh, well, I think what Black Power means is the empowerment of Black people to make decisions that affect their lives, essentially that's what it means. Not just politically, but economically, socially, culturally, those kinds of things that, ah, oh, decisions that affect their lives.
