nnq : day nineteen

by C5Damani (old head of the movement)

“How refreshing to consume words that have meaning and depth. In the great and honored tradition of wisdom literature and if there is anything that could be called instant wisdom, ‘nigga notes & quotes’ fills that void. This book may be the finest book of quotes, anecdotes, sayings and sage bromides any people struggling for human dignity and liberation will ever read.”

when describing “nigga notes & quotes”*

– day nineteen –

“…we must believe in our people’s capacity to achieve and overcome if we are to be more than little men with big grudges equally divided between our hate for the enemy and dislike for each other.”

“… if one does not understand struggle, one will not struggle and will in the process of not understanding struggle hinder struggle in others. However, a commitment to the black struggle will come about only after a commitment to one’s self and one’s people is made first. That is. fundamentally, one must see value in one’s self and one’s people if one is to make a sincere commitment to self and people.”

“…one needs imagination to confront a revolution, for revolution does not move in straight lines alone; it jerks, twists and backtracks.”

*Since most of these quotes were collected prior to 1985 it means some of the authors of these quotes, I have simply forgotten… blame old age! (Ha) When the author is known, I will indicate it. When an author is not indicated, please forgive me and understand. Furthermore, this collection of quotes was first started as a personal endeavor never meant to be shared publicly thus the reason why some authors may not be indicated.
