I’ve been reading The LIfe and Struggles of Stokely Carmichael. And while doing so, I’ve immersed myself in the culture of the time. I’ve tried placing myself in Stokely’s presence. I can’t seem to understand how someone so strong, dignified, articulate and intelligent could NOT have ruled the world? His intelligence is so profound. If only this generation bared a son so powerful with words. I can’t imagine what he could have accomplished given more resources. Quite unfathomable.
People seemed so much more purposeful at that time. What happened?
