A Critique of Modern Leadership and What Our Movements Presently Need “I’m willing to act, if I can find brave men and women willing to help me.”- Dr. Carter G. Woodson. The good doctor wasn’t alone in this thought process as I too share his concern and zeal to help the race, however, there are certain racial codes that need resurgence. We first can’t understand our battle for liberation if we’re stuck on the battle against ourselves. The intellectuall sparring must cease. Gone are the days of ancestor scholars John Henrik Clarke and Amos Wilson in physical form. We have but their words to live by but had we heeded their words when they were on this side, we’d be on a better side in liberating the race. Some ask, “why do you speak consistently of liberation?” I speak liberation for the voiceless that wish they could speak. If my people have been so subjected and cast down, but not destroyed, we have nowhere to go but up. What are your thoughts? Where do you feel so-called Black leadership continues failing and what can be done to truly unify the wise of us?
