We present our dear brother Kwame Ture (formerly known as Stokely Carmichael), in his own words. This interview conducted by C-SPAN, and took place on April 15, 1998 (our brother would go on to join the ancestors on November 15, 1998, in our homeland, Guinea, Conakry). Our brother was quite fond of this particular interview, because he felt that Brian Lamb (the interviewer, as well as the founder of C-SPAN) treated him with the utmost respect, treatment the brother was not accustomed to in Western media outlets; brother Ture pointed out his respect of Mr. Lamb in his phenomenal autobiography Ready for Revolution: The Life and Struggles of Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture), pages 758-759.
During this interview, our brother was firmly in the death grip of prostate cancer, but this did not by any means diminish his mental capacity, his love, and his devotion to the people. Brother Ture worked for the people until his last day on this earth (peace be unto him). For more on our brother please read his autobiography (there are a lot of facts about the Civil Rights movement I didn’t know about, like where the hell did it go! Our brother makes it plain.); like so many other important freedom fighters in the world, the “International Community” would love to leave their names off the record books of history, because one can only operate based on the information given to them. So I present to you Kwame Ture, unedited as it was presented on C-SPAN (with the exception of the address to donate to our brother’s medical fund, for obvious reasons) as our brother would have liked it. I end this post as our brother would have ended it; READY FOR REVOULTION!
