what to the slave is your fourth of ju-lie?
What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelly to which he is the constant victim.
To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour.
“we must look at the economic and political functions of education…you have to understand yourself and come to self knowledge to know who you are then you can know who your children are. the destiny of the African child is revolutionary by the very nature of the economic and political position that we are in. there is no way if you are in your right mind you can say you want your child to be educated in the same things a white children. they do not have the same problems to solve. the role of the African child is to overthrow the system and change the dynamic of the power relations here. the major problem that the African child must solve is the problem of oppression and if this child is to be appropriately educated, it must be educated to undertake revolution and to gain its liberation through its own struggle. you understand? it is in our effort to be like white folk that we generate the power for them to rule us.”
