Black Liberation Month: http://panafricannews.blogspot.com/

The following are excerpts from an African American History Month lecture delivered by Mr. Abayomi Azikiwe at Henry Ford College in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, on Feb. 11, 2015:

“…Not only should we seriously study African American, African and world history, but we must make history ourselves. Racist violence against African Americans and other oppressed people must be eradicated because “Black Lives Matter.”

The task of the present generation is to ensure that the legacies of our heroes and “sheroes” continue. We have to eliminate poverty and national oppression.

Our communities need our assistance to build organizations that will take on the true predators which are the banks and corporations with have looted Detroit and other major cities around the U.S.

The recent upsurge in mass demonstrations since the police murder of Michael Brown in Aug. of last year portends much for 2015. We must join this movement to make our contribution to the liberation of our people and humanity in general.” / [Full remarks: http://www.spyghana.com/youth-must-broaden-horizons-meet-challenges/]
