Charles V. Hamilton
Charles Vernon Hamilton (born October 19, 1929) is a political scientist, civil rights leader, and the W. S. Sayre Professor Emeritus of Government and Political Science at Columbia University. 
Hamilton was born in
Muskogee, Oklahoma. He graduated from Roosevelt University in 1951, and went on to earn a master's degree in 1957 from the  University of Chicago. He joined the  Tuskegee Institute faculty in 1958, but his contract there was terminated in 1960, and he returned to the University of Chicago, where he earned a Ph.D. in 1964.  He held faculty positions at  Rutgers University, Lincoln University (Pennsylvania), and Roosevelt University before joining the Columbia University faculty in 1969. Hamilton retired from the Columbia faculty in 1998 and later moved to Chicago.
His most noted work is
Black Power: The Politics of Liberation, written with Stokely Carmichael.  
Cashmore and Jennings argue that Hamilton and Carmichael were the first to use the term
institutional racism in a systematic fashion.
