    Black Child's Pledge

    I pledge allegiance to my Black People.
    I pledge to develop my mind and body to the greatest extent possible.
    I will learn all that I can in order to give my best to my People in their struggle for liberation.
    I will keep myself physically fit, building a strong body free from drugs and other substances
    which weaken me and make me less capable of protecting myself, my family and my Black brothers and sisters.
    I will unselfishly share my knowledge and understanding with them in order to bring about change more quickly.
    I will discipline myself to direct my energies thoughtfully and constructively rather than wasting them in idle hatred.
    I will train myself never to hurt or allow others to harm my Black brothers and sisters for I recognize that we need
    every Black Man, Woman, and Child to be physically, mentally and psychologically strong.
    These principles I pledge to practice daily and to teach them to others in order to unite my People.
