A transnational, pan-African youth movement, Black Power in Bermuda sought freedom for Blacksfrom the island's White oligarchy and independence from British colonialism. It was spearheaded by activists such asPauulu Kamarakafego and the Black Beret Cadre. The Cadre maintained relationships with revolutionary organizations across the African Diaspora, such as the Black Panthers. Emerging inthe late 1960s, the Movementwitnessed the assassinations of Bermuda's British Chief of Police and Governor (1972-1973). Swan carefully details the island's colonial government's attempts to destroy theMovement through military tactics, extensive propaganda, and the implementation of token social concessions
