“Two Black sprinters, #JohnCarlos & #TommieSmith, used their victory ceremony in the 200-meter dash as vehicle for a Black power demonstration on this day. At the time Smith said “the symbolism of the black righr glove symbolized power, the left black glove symbolized unity, the scarf symbolized Blackness & the black socks symbolized our poverty”
"Lynchings and race riots….all work to our advantage by teaching the "Negro" that he must build a civilization of his own or remain forever the white mans victim"
"A race that is solely dependent upon others for it’s economic existence sooner or later dies"
"My daughters hair is #Africa , before the colonizers. A geography of naps resisting, a million strands daring. Erect and ready, as if an awesome secert lies. At each root. I loom behind this tender thing. Her cereal spoon in one hand, soft eyes now eagle eyed. Transfixed by cartooned magic, I am armed. Heir to an arsenal complete, comb, heavy hand, oil. A plan. The downy mass conforms, the kink at the nape becomes. A flattened coast. I part roads, careful to tighten the gathering. Overtake this continent of mesh and silk, twist down the renegade locs. When I am done she turns suprised by the sudden stillness. Are you finished? I survey this new landscape, remind myself to love it"
-Lita Hooper “On Combing Soji’s Hair”
