«Black Power» er både et slagord og en samlebetegnelse på en sosial bevegelse 1960- og 1970-tallet. Black Power-bevegelsen vokste ut av en misnøye med hva borgerrettighetsbevegelsen var i stand til å oppnå for svarte i USA, og et ønske om selvråderett og økt politisk og økonomisk makt for svarte amerikanere.Begrepet Black Power dukket først opp i skrift som tittel på Richard Wrights bok ved samme navn i 1954, men ble kjent i den videre offentligheten da Stokely Carmichael fra borgerrettsorganisasjonen The Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) brukte det som slagord under en demonstrasjon i Mississippi i 1966.

Although African American writers and politicians used the term “Black Power” for years, the expression first entered the lexicon of the civil rights movement during the Meredith March Against Fear in the summer of 1966. Martin Luther King, Jr., believed that Black Power was “essentially an emotional concept” that meant “different things to different people,” but he worried that the slogan carried “connotations of violence and separatism” and opposed its use (King, 32; King, 14 October 1966). The controversy over Black Power reflected and perpetuated a split in the civil rights movement between organizations that maintained that nonviolent methods were the only way to achieve civil rights goals and those organizations that had become frustrated and were ready to adopt violence and black separatism.
