“I cannot thank the President General enough for allowing me to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
“If it were not for the UNIA, I would be so frustrated and militant in responding to the white police brutality attacking our people. But because of the President General, I now know that the solutrion is a self reliant independent economics system based on Race First “
