“To identify the enemy is to free the mind”: Mari Evans.
As relating to Colonialism- Internally, Domestic, a stalwart example of making this apparent, would be one not suffering from acute provincialism, such as a worthy opponent– Malcolm X, whom imbibed ideas of Dr. Martin L King:
" An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity".
‘Malcolm certainly made his mark on Ghanaians, as described by John Lewis and Donald Harris, two representatives of the American Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee [ SNCC ] visiting Ghana late in 1964:
“Among the first questions we were continually asked was ‘What’s your organization’s relationship with Malcolm’s”?
After a day of this we found that we must , immediately on meeting people, state our own position in regard to where we stood on certain issues– Cuba, Vietnam, the Congo, Red China and the UN…We ultimately found that this situation was not peculiar to Ghana, the pattern repeated itself in every country…Malcolm’s impact of Africa was just fantastic. In every country he was known and served as the main criteria for categorizing other Afro- Americans and their political views”. [ Malcolm X Visits Abroad; Marika Sherwood ]
"Let a new earth rise. Let another world be born. Let a bloody peace be written in the sky. Let a second generation full of courage issue forth; Let a people loving freedom come to growth": Margaret Walker.
Love the concept “Emancipatory Journalism”. It is what all journalism should be. It is not what we have in the main stream media. We have capitalist controlled journalism, or corporate controlled journalism. MLK was killed not for his race, but for his criticism of capitalism and militarism (even though the motives of the shooter may have been racial.)
