Some of the greatest music ever written came to life in this era. At the same time, political speakers like Malcolm X, Huey Newton and Stokely Carmichael stepped forward to lead a generation. Two words sum up the movement: Black Power. This two-CD compilation culls the greatest hits of that era, bringing together both politics and the era's culture as accurately as any history book.

• Filled with huge hits that are constantly heard on radio, in film and TV, including Top 20 hits from The Chi-Lites, The O'Jays, James Brown, The Isley Brothers and Nina Simone.
• Features the most outspoken artists of the era, such as Parliament, The Last Poets and Gil Scott-Heron.
• This is the only domestic compilation available highlighting this era and is the first to tie together the political and cultural aspects of the times.
