We have to prove that greatness is not to be
measured in stockpiles of atom bombs. I believe
strongly and sincerely that with the deep-rooted
wisdom and dignity, the innate respect for human
lives, the intense humanity that is our heritage, the
African race, united under one federal government, will emerge not as just another world bloc to flaunt
its wealth and strength, but as a Great Power
whose greatness is indestructible because it is built
not on fear, envy and suspicion, nor won at the
expense of others, but founded on hope, trust,
friendship and directed to the good of all mankind.

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
