Description

James Forman was an organizer, writer and activist.

Forman wrote a memoir, The Making of Black Revolutionaries, and voiced his political ideas and organizational acumen as founding president of the Unemployment and Poverty Action Committee. The James Forman Library includes approximately 6,000 books and printed matter, and 36 boxes of FBI files, personal papers, and media materials.
