A Taste of Power weaves autobiography and political history into a story that fascinates and illuminates

A Taste of Power weaves autobiography and political history into a story that fascinates and illuminates. A stunning picture of a black woman’s coming of age in America.

The only woman to do so, Elaine Brown chaired the Black Panther Party from 1974 until 1977. In her 1992 memoir A Taste of Power, she wrote about the experience: "A woman in the Black Power movement was considered, at best, irrelevant. A woman asserting herself was a pariah. If a black woman assumed a role of leadership, she was said to be eroding black manhood, to be hindering the progress of the black race. I knew I had to muster something mighty to manage the Black Panther Party.

With these words, Elaine Brown proclaimed to the assembled leadership of the Black Panther Party that she was now in charge. The Panthers had grown from a small Oakland-based cell to a national organization that had mobilized black communities throughout the country. The party's achievements had won the support of millions of white liberals, but the violent assaults on the party by the police had brought death or imprisonment to many of its prominent members. More than ajourney through a turbulent time in American history, this is the story of a black woman's battle to define herself. Freedom, Elaine Brown discovered, may be more than a politicalquestion.

I never understood the Black Power movement until I read this book. Ms. Brown's descriptions of the inner workings of the Black Panther Party were eye opening. It allowed me to see the other side of the coin and not just the propoganda I'd been taught all my life. This is a must read for all women - young and old!

I never knew how active, or successful, or dysfunctional the BPP was. I certainly knew NOTHING about Elaine Brown, although I had always heard that much of the success was from the work of the women. I'm both inspired and discouraged by how little things have changed with regard to gender relations. Elaine Brown - Salute!

A fresh perspective on the Black Panther Party without all the glamour and romance. This book gives the gritty truth about an organization that was not as organized as we all thought. After reading this book, it is understandable why the party eventually collapsed. This is a great book for anyone trying to avoid the pitfalls that plague socially conscious organizations.

Hard to tell truth from fiction from embellishment – but a great read none the less. Very well written.

Elaine Brown went from the hood to the governor's office in her search for identity as a black woman coming of age in the 1970s and to make the black power movement - the Black Panther Party - a powerful voice in California state politics.

The autobiography is seemingly an act of catharsis as Brown bares her soul without justifying what she has done with her life. It is what it is and she keeps it real.

There will be segments that you'll be touched by, others that will repulse you and some where you question why, but it ultimately is her life story. Sexuality and violence - oftentimes at the hands of her lovers in the BPP - overshadows Brown's quest for love and acceptance, but you will find segments of her life that intertwine with snapshots from your past.

Brown takes what I consider some unnecessary swipes at Angela Davis - it is taken for granted that many in the black power movement questioned her membership in the Communist Party, USA - but she does have unapologetic portraits of people throughout her life.

If you are looking for an autobiography solely on the BPP from a party member's perspective, you may want to look for another book to read. But you will be missing one of the most powerful writings on one's life that has ever been published.

Loved every minute of this book. It gave alot of good insight on the Black Panther Party, Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver. A must read!

Well written and makes you feel you were with her during the events. Elaine went from very little knowledge about her to one of my favorite Panthers.
Before "intersectionality" was an academic and activist buzzword, there was Elaine Brown. This is an amazing look at the Panthers not only from the inside, but from the perspective of a black woman. Excellent.
