  2. 2. Page 2 of 5We know that one of the greatest crimes an individual can commitis that of being ungrateful.I have made many errors, but of one thing I am certain, my abilityto continue serving in the African and World Revolution is greatlyattributed to a number of contributions that I have received fromthe masses of African and other Oppressed Peoples worldwide. Wecite here, just a few examples. Kwame Ture ( fna StokeleyIn 1966, when I had just been elected Chairperson of the Student Carmichael) - A Brief BiographyNon-violent Coordinating Committee, my first official act, was tovisit the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam. It isthen that he ordered all members of the Fruit of Islam to protect mewherever I traveled, anywhere in the world. I am still under thatumbrella of protection today, here in Africa, in Guinea. I couldnever be ungrateful to the Nation of Islam, to the Honorable Elijah Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) 1996 Interview part 1 of 5Muhammad, nor to his incarnation - Minister Louis Farrakhan.In 1967, U.S. imperialism was seriously planning to assassinateme. It still is, this time by an FBI induced cancer, the latest in thewhite mans arsenal of chemical and biological warfare, as I ammore determined to destroy it today than in 1967. It was Fidel Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)Castro who before the OLAS Conference said "if imperialism 1996 Interview part 2 of 5touches one grain of hair on his head, we shall not let the fact passwithout retaliation." It was he, who on his own behalf, asked themall to stay in contact with me when I returned to the United Statesto offer me protection. I could never be ungrateful to the People ofCuba nor to Cubas incarnation - Fidel Castro. Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) 1996 Interview part 3 of 5In 1967, Presidents Ahmed Seku Ture and Kwame Nkrumah,through the intercession of Shirley Graham DuBois, invited me toattend the 8th Congress of the Democratic Party of Guinea (RDA).They invited me to live, work, study and struggle here in Guinea,an invitation which I readily accepted, despite tremendous criticism Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)from almost every quarter. Thirty years later, I still live in Guinea, 1996 Interview part 4 of 5working, studying and struggling for the African Revolution. And Iwill continue to do so until the last second, of the last minute, ofthe last hour, of the last day. And it is my wish to sleep here inGuinea, eternally. I could never be ungrateful to the People ofGuinea, nor Guineas and Africas incarnations - Ahmed Seku Ture Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)and Kwame Nkrumah. 1996 Interview part 5 of 5From Kwame Ture His last words!

  3. 3. Page 3 of 5Today, on behalf of the All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party (A-APRP), I am honored toaccept an invitation that has been extended by Brother Muammar Al Qathafi and the People ofthe Libyan Jamiriyha to travel to Tripoli, which is in Africa, so that they might assist me in myeternal fight, against an unyielding enemy. It would be ungrateful, and unAfrican for me torefuse.We wish to thank Brother Muammar and the People of the Libyan Jamiriyha for sending us thishospital plane which I, and members of my biological and ideological family now board. Thisact is just one more act of an infinite number of Brother Muammars and the Libyan Peoplescontributions to African and World Humanity. I am sure I will never be ungrateful to therevolutionary People of the Libyan Jamahiriyat as long as I live, as I shall remain eternallysteadfast and faithful to revolutionary principles. And I know that my biological and ideologicalfamily will remain steadfast and faithful as well.Sisters and Brother, Comrades, we know that the Cuban and Libyan Revolutions have a base ofsolid support among the Africans in United States and around the world. Imperialism also knowsthis. This support has been earned by Cuba and Libya, at great sacrifice. All Africans in theUnited States know anytime imperialism is hunting an African Revolutionary, if they make it toCuba, as in baseball, they are home safe. From Robert Williams to Assata Shakur, Cuba has paida heavy price as a haven for Revolutionaries throughout the world. We also know, first hand,Libyas contributions to, and protection of African and other Revolutionaries worldwide. U.S.imperialism is doing everything possible to corrode Cubas and Libyas support among theAfricans in the United States and the world.Today, we board a hospital plane to travel nonstop from Conakry to Tripoli, Libya, arevolutionary country, an African country. All of our Brother, Sister and Allied Organizations,worldwide, have been requested by our Party, the All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party, tojoin us in Tripoli; and on our return from Tripoli to Conakry. Travel to a revolutionary country,especially one in Africa, must lead to concrete action to advance the African and WorldRevolution. We have a heightened responsibility to help protect Cuba and Libya at this time. Wemust move before U.S. imperialism is strengthened and attacks, not after, by strengthening ourpeople ideologically and practically now. We must cement Cuba and Libya to Africa, and toAfrican People worldwide, and vice versa.We must make it clear, that an embargo and travel ban against Cuba and Libya, is an embargoand travel ban against Africa and against 1 billion African People who are scattered, sufferingand struggling in every corner of the world. We must make it crystal clear that if you attack Cubaand Libya, you attack all African People worldwide, and we must break U.S. imperialisms handsoff Cuba and Libya. We must end this illegal and immoral embargo and travel ban now. Andwith this act, by our example of boarding this hospital plane, we declare an end, once and for all,to this illegal and immoral embargo and travel ban, an end to this latest crime against Africanand World Humanity.From Kwame Ture His last words!

  4. 4. Page 4 of 5As children, we joined the Freedom Rides, to break the back of segregation and apartheid ininterstate transportation in the United States. Today, we ride on the front of the bus, we charterbuses to take one million men, women and children to marches in Washington, Philadelphia,New York and Atlanta. And we will never turn back.In the 1960s, we said "Hell No, we wont go" to Vietnam, to fight against a people who nevercalled us a nigger, and we didnt go. We said that they would defeat U.S. imperialism, and theheroic Vietnamese People, under the sterling example and leadership of the eternal Ho Chi Minhdid.Today, we say "Hell yes, we are going to Libya." We are traveling nonstop, all the way, fromConakry to Tripoli, and we warn the U.S. government not to interfere. We are certain today, thatthe people of Cuba and Libya, under the steadfast leadership of Fidel Castro and MuammarQuadafhi will be victorious.The embargo and travel ban against Libya, Cuba, North Korea, Iraq and Iran is finished, as ofthis day. The All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party is honored to make our humblecontribution towards this end. We thank the you. As African youth worldwide say, "the beat goeson."As always, we remain Ready for Revolution!From Kwame Ture His last words! Organize! Organize! Organize!
