  1. 1. Told through inspiring quotes and pictures that encompass my journey towards equality<br />The Chronological Story of Stokely Carmichael<br />
  2. 2. Well-educated<br />"There is a higher law thanthe law of government. That's the law of conscience."<br />
  3. 3. ….I joined the SNCC in 1960<br /> “An organization which claims to be working for the needs of a community - as SNCC does - must work to provide that community with a position of strength from which to make its voice heard. This is the significance of black power beyond the slogan.”<br />
  4. 4. ….Workin’ in Non-violent techniques, I joined the Freedom Riders<br />‘‘We want control of the institutions of the communities where we live and we want to stop the exploitation of nonwhite people around the world.’’<br />
  5. 5. In protest, I was arrested….<br />“Seems to me that the institutions that function in this country are clearly racist, and that they're built upon racism.”<br />
  6. 6. Upon bein’ arrested for the 27th time, I decided to speak up!<br />“I called for black people in this country to unite, to recognize their heritage, and to build a sense of community”<br />…declaring my new ideals of Black Power!<br />
  7. 7. ….I became so angered, I wrote a book.<br />If violence be the necessary means to achieve our goals, then so be it!<br />"Stokely, you have to understand one thing. The beauty of nonviolence is that you never let an outside force, nothing outside of yourself, control what you do.”<br />-The words of MLK, so mistaken, so wrong.<br />
  8. 8. …My new slogan, “Black is beautiful.”<br />“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.”<br />Honorary Prime <br />Minster, promoting radical measures<br />
  9. 9. …Declaring the fact that violence may be necessary, I formed a new party.<br />“One cohesive force to wage an unrelenting armed struggle against the white Western empire for the liberation of our people.” <br />
  10. 10. …Though my struggles continue<br />“Before a group can enter the open society, it must first close ranks.”<br />Let it be known one should not let anything prevent them from achieving their dreams.<br />
