You are the ancient builders of civilization, Before there was civilization, you were there, and when civilization was built, your fathers built it.  Teach your children they are direct descendants of the greatest and proudest race who ever peopled the earth.  With some of us, militancy against discrimination and racial indignity is a heritage from our forebears.  Especially the old ones that know us and have gone on before—the ancestors.  To believe is to become what you believe.  We, as their successors, must catch the torch of freedom and liberty passed on to us by our ancestors.

My ancestors were among the first to people America.  Sometimes the ancestors deem certain information so important that they send it to the subconscious mind without being consciously asked.  Years ago I resolved that because I had no ancestors myself, I would leave a record of which my children would be proud, and which might encourage them to still higher effort.  The genius of our black foremothers and forefathers was to equip black folk with cultural armor to beat back the demons of hopelessness, meaninglessness, and lovelessness.

The United States] is moving toward two societies, one black, one white, separate and unequal.  intervention [in Vietnam] because we are deluded in supposing we have the right or the power to dictate the principles under which other people should live.  I love America more than any other country in the world, and exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.  The making of an American begins at that point where he himself rejects all other ties, any other history, and himself adopts the vesture of his adopted land.
