An ugly and ignominious Los Angeles black militancy quickly tried to hijack the treasure chest. The black UCLA students (abetted by the Black Panther Party) resisted the black militant clowns, but the students did not, of course, possess a great deal of political sophistication. But even in the face of black militant thug life and gun-toting paramilitarism there still was ample reason to predict that “Black matters” (including student and first-rate faculty recruitment) at UCLA would make headway.
New Haven was positively situated for revolution. Its deeply hybrid urban energies might have morphed into brilliantly innovative plans of action and an invaluable body of knowledge to inform and guide a deindustrializing and chauvinistically “racialized” America to a better future. Alas, that did not happen . . but, I am getting ahead of my story. Let me go back to our arrival. Though we had no hint of it when we arrived – and certainly had no extensive urban studies education or black revolutionary zeal under our belt – we had, at least, found our way (not without navigational mishaps) to a place where there were young and fiercely intelligent blacks striving both to read and to shape the future in positive ways from their Yale/New Haven base.
We have made gains. Black Studies is as real today as rain – and as enduringly influential among progressive academics in America as the earth itself. Nevertheless, we still have to guard our whole enterprise and personal being against the charge that we are CRAZY when we strive to act on behalf of, and with the best interests of, the black majority in mind. Today, navigational mistakes are far too costly. The map is in our hands, and we must read it correctly on behalf of a beleaguered majority.
