      “By Any Means Necessary...”

      Revolutionary Black Liberation Leader in the U.S.

      “All of our people have the same goals, the same objective: freedom, justice, equality. All of us want recognition and respect as human beings...

      Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods or tactics or strategy to reach a common objective.

      We have to keep in mind at all times that we aren't fighting for integration, nor are we fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as human beings. We are fighting for the right to live as free humans in this society. In fact, we are actually fighting for rights that are even greater than civil rights and that is, human rights. We are fighting for human rights in 1964. This is a shame,”
