Die Nigger Die!

In order to facilitate meaningful in-person exchanges and economically empower Black-owned bookstores, Noname’s Bookclub will be building partnerships with Black book retailers in major cities to distribute the club’s monthly titles.

The collaboration between Hakim’s Bookstore and Noname’s Book Club is as follows. Each month Noname’s Book Club selects two titles by POC and/or LGBTQ2IA+ authors to discuss among an online and in-person community of readers who (are learning to) love books.

More than any other black leader, H. Rap Brown, chairman of the radical Black Power organization Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), came to symbolize the ideology of black revolution.

This autobiography—which was first published in 1969, went through seven printings and has long been unavailable—chronicles the making of a revolutionary. It is much more than a personal history, however; it is a call to arms, an urgent message to the black community to be the vanguard force in the struggle of oppressed people. Forthright, sardonic, and shocking, this book is not only illuminating and dynamic but also a vitally important document that is essential to understanding the upheavals of the late 1960s.

University of Massachusetts professor Ekwueme Michael Thelwell has updated this edition, covering Brown’s decades of harassment by law enforcement agencies, his extraordinary transformation into an important Muslim leader, and his sensational trial.
