    Kwame Ture (Stokely Standiford Churchill Carmichael) has been called "the most courageous and consistent black revolutionary of his generation." It is said that his "love for suffering and struggling black people was astounding and amazing." The following pages highlight the remarkable life of this extraordinary man.

    Kwame Ture was born in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad May 29, 1941. He spent his first 11 years under the watchful eyes of his grandmother and his aunts. He, along with his two sisters, joined their parents in New York City in 1952. More than 40 years would pass before Kwame would return to the land of his birth.

    Bro OldSoul thanks for displaying your infinite wisdom by posting this article on Baba Kwame Ture, this staunch PanAfricanist epitomized the concept of PanAfricanism.
    Born in the Islands, raised in the united states organized worldwide and joined the Ancestors in his beloved Guinea.
    This should be required reading for all Africans!!!!

    I remember hearing much about Stokely Carmichael as I was growing up, about the power of his words and influence. Thank you for posting this oldsoul.
