    Incredibly interesting interview.. the conflicts and confusion of Africans in America is on full display.. its in their language.. in their disposition.. particularly in the female interviewer.. the white mans divide and conquer tactics are on full display in her. Its amazing how much stronger the African woman that Bob called to speak came across.. These guys are talking about the context of physical, mental and spiritual liberation for Afrikan people worldwide.. and she's talking about gender.. searching for conflict.. not realizing that she has been embedded with a philosophy of division.. pushing the larger context to the side in search of her own empowerment. Its amazing how clearly you can see how language is used to confuse and to deceive.. and how.. the more words used, the more confusion created. Clarity.. truth is usually brief.

    I can not view the video on mobile so I was wondering if this is the full 39 minute video?

    I don't remember if the interviewer was Neville Garrick, because I do recall a UCLA graduate student, Grayling Williams, who worked on organizing the interview. He actually had approached me earlier in the year to conduct the interview but I was unavailable organizing African Liberation Day.

    I believe this was around the time the Wailers were also set to perform in Santa Barbara. This was a period when the anti apartheid movement at UCLA was gaining momentum, my last year as an undergraduate student.

    The brother who asked the question about revolution around 12:20 is Grayling Williams. One of the other interviewers is Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn. They both were contributors to NOMMO, the African student newsmagazine at UCLA.

    Thanks for posting this because we recently lost a close comrade and the video helps me put some things into perspective. The probing nature of some of the questions proves just how DEEP some of us were into Bob Marley and the Rasta movement at the time.

    The video is private. I believe this is the relevant part:

    You have to consider the time. This young lady probably was just taught about women's lib issues.



    One of the best interviews I know of of Bob Marley was by Gil Noble:

    The video is not private. The entire video is relevant. Yes, the young lady probably was just taught about white women's lib issues.. and was a bit confused.. Also, there is another thread setup for that Gil Noble Interview already: @ http://www.destee.com/index.php?threads/gil-noble-interview-with-bob-marley.71535/

    Oh ok, is that your video? Because from my end it comes up as private, I would love to see the whole thing.
