The history of the militant urban activism in the late 1960s suggests that organizations like the Young Lords and the Black Panthers were spawned by the deep and unprecedented social and economic changes taking place in northern cities in the postwar period, and that their practices and politics were also tied to these developments. The history of the Young Lords Party challenges mainstream depictions of the civil rights and Black Power movements. It suggests that although racial inequality in America impelled the movement's emergence, the objectives and character of protest were integrally interwoven with grievances of social and economic import and driven by a strong class impulse.
