Chairman Omali Yeshitela Speaks.
"Political Africans must not be tricked into the unprincipled white arena where O.L. and the various white communist organizations are performing autopsies on the exhumed 'national question.' Let the dead bury the dead, we must be about the task of national liberation. After all, we are our own liberators!"
Editor's note: This Point of The Spear first appeared in February 1980. It was written 40 years ago for a Party conference in Gainesville, Florida by Chairman Omali Yeshitela. This document was actually a political report that preceded the Party's First Congress two years later.
The following presentation was made by Chairman Omali Yeshitela at a press conference held on June 15, 2020 by the Uhuru Movement in response to the St. Petersburg city council’s proposal to hang a plaque on the blank wall in city hall to replace an offensive anti-African, white nationalist mural that the Chairman tore down during a demonstration in 1966.
Another problem solved by our Party was to give reality to the demand for reparations that had been talked about within the national liberation movement for generations.
