“[B]lack Power was portrayed as an isolated phenomenon, an aberration that would soon pass. History is. We cannot make it otherwise. Slave revolts and Black Power rebellions clearly demonstrate history. Africans demonstrate the universal law of human nature: Where there is oppression there is resistance, and ‘where oppression grows, resistance grows.’ Thus, yesterday Africans burned agricultural plantations in slave revolts; today, they burn industrial cities in urban rebellions; tomorrow they will burn a technological nation in Revolution, but they will be Free!”
