#art/#history: 'in order for non-violence to work, your opponent must have a conscience.' political resisters would do well to bear in mind the wise words of cointelpro fave, kwame ture (better known as stokely carmichael, born #otd in 1941). i'm totally stoked to honour this native of trinidad & tobago & an original freedom rider, stokely was a founder of the black power movement & served as the honorary prime minister of the black panther party. an activist to his end days (at 57 years old), kwame was not without controversy. on balance, however his intelligence & pursuit of justice eclipsed a misspoken quip or two.
