Finally we continue our month-long tribute to the 90th anniversary of African American History Month presenting a speech by Stokely Carmichael, the then Chair of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), delivered at the University of California at Berkely during October 1966 addressing the Black Power slogan and its relationship to the broader movement for civil rights and opposition to the war in Vietnam.
