Manifestasi awal ‘’Black Power’’ dalam budaya popular timbul sewaktu persembahan [[Nina Simone]] di Carnegie Hall pada Mac 1964. Dalam sebuah lagunya, “Go Limp“, Simone mencemuh gerakan tanpa kekerasan dan juga puak pelampau kulit putih dalam lagunya , "Mississippi Goddamn" dan "Pirate Jenny". Pakar sejarah, Ruth Feldstein, mengatakan bahawa fahaman nasionalisme kulit hitam dan ‘’Black Power’’ ini berputik dan berkembang sejak awal tahun 1960-an lagi.<ref>Ruth Feldstein, [http://hnn.us/article/154884 "Nina Simone: The Antidote to the 'We Shall Overcome' Myth of the Civil Rights Movement"], History News Network (George Mason University).</ref>
Namun, fahaman tegar ini mendapat bantahan keras daripada aktivitis-aktivitis seperti [[Martin Luther King, Jr.]] dan [[Roy Wilkins]] dan menolak aspirasi untuk hidup berpisah sebagai matlamat utama. King menolak secara keras fahaman ‘’Black Power’’ ini dalam sebuah ucapan yang diberikan pada Ogos 1967: ''"Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout 'White Power!' — when nobody will shout 'Black Power!' — but everybody will talk about God's power and human power."'' (“Marilah kita berasa tidak puas hati sehingga tiba suatu masa di mana orang tidak akan lagi berteriak, ‘White‘''White Power’Power!''’ atau ‘Black‘''Black Power!''’ tetapi semua akan bercakap tentang ‘Kuasa Tuhan’ dan ‘Kuasa Manusia’)Manusia.”)<ref>{{cite book|url=http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/index.php/encyclopedia/documentsentry/where_do_we_go_from_here_delivered_at_the_11th_annual_sclc_convention/|last=King|first=Martin Luther|title=Address to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference|date=August 16, 1967|publisher=Stanford}}</ref> Dalam bukunya yang bertajuk, ''[[Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?]]'', King mengatakan:
 
{{Quote|''In the final analysis the weakness of Black Power is its failure to see that the black man needs the white man and the white man needs the black man. However much we may try to romanticize the slogan, there is no separate black path to power and fulfillment that does not intersect white paths, and there is no separate white path to power and fulfillment, short of social disaster, that does not share that power with black aspirations for freedom and human dignity. We are bound together in a single garment of destiny. The language, the cultural patterns, the music, the material prosperity, and even the food of America are an amalgam of black and white.''<ref>{{Cite book|title=Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?|date=1967|last=King|first=Martin Luther}}</ref>}}
