TONIGHT, March 1 Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975 – CD Forum is excited to present Pat Thomas and his highly anticipated book Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.

In 2004, Pat began working on a research project centered around the Black Panther Party with a focus on the protest recordings that the Black Power movement inspired during the 1960s and 1970s  this led to establishing strong working relationships with two key leaders of the Black Panther Party David Hilliard (Chief of Staff) and Party chairman Elaine Brown (including releasing her landmark 1969 album “Seize The Time” on CD). As well as meetings with Bobby Seale, Ericka Huggins, and other Panthers. Over a period of 5 years, Pat uncovered dozens of rare/out of print/forgotten Black Power recordings in all areas of jazz, soul, poetry, speeches, interviews, and rock/pop music  eventually amassing what might be considered the largest collection of its kind.
