Founded in Brooklyn, New York, in 1969, The East organization was begun as "a self-determining cultural and educational organization for African and African-descended people." In this volume, the second edition of a work originally published as Truth Crushed to the Earth Shall Rise Again, Konadu (history, City U. of New York) presents an organizational history of The East that explores its cultural nationalism, education and art programs; its emphasis on economic self-sufficiency during the Black Power era; and its influence and legacy in Brooklyn and beyond.
