OK, I have removed quite a few entries that I don't think have a clearly-established association with Black Power. I'd have preferred to discuss the intended scope of the template before gutting it. Huon (talk) 02:24, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Okay lets just discuss it here instead of on my page. Good edits by the way, but we do need more content...

Terrible original research violations[edit]

This template is a mess! I know templates don't generally have footnotes, but there is no connection between most of the items in the template and Black Power.

Malcolm X? He was killed more than a year before Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., widely credited with coining the phrase, first used the expression. So why is Malcolm X in the template, and why is Powell missing? Malcolm X's obscure diary is included, but his hugely influential autobiography is missing?

This template would probably benefit from the application of some TNT. 107.10.236.42 (talk) 04:12, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Malcolm X is influential in the development of the thought and movement. Im fine with gutting it, maybe remake it as a navbar?Mangokeylime (talk) 00:53, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
