Dr. Chancellor Williams states,"Until Afro-Americans are quite clear in their own minds about their real situation in this country, all talk about unity and achieving equal justice will be just that - useless talk.
What we lack is the chain-store vision and the enterprising spirit that organizes groups fully able to launch large-scale community-financed undertakings.
Blacks must now fill the gaps on all fronts, must prove their worth. The time for big talking is over. The time for big action is here. That is why a nation-wide movement for unity in one vast organization of millions is the road to construction action through the various back communities of the country."
If anyone is pulling themselves up by the bootstraps, its African Americans.
