Alpha Black statement:  Fred Hampton

(August 30, 1948 – December 4, 1969) Basically, the way (people) learn is observation and participation. You know a lot of us go around and joke ourselves and believe that the masses have PhDs, but that's not true. And even if they did, it wouldn't make any difference. Because with some things, you have to learn by seeing it or either participating in it. And you know yourselves that there are people walking around your community today that have all types of degrees that should be at this meeting but are not here. Right? Because you can have as many degrees as a thermometer. If you don't have any practice, then you can't walk across the street and chew gum at the same time.

Messiah Rising: we won't stop

Messiah Rising is a proclamation of Black Power rising in relentless opposition to the many government and social attempts to crush Black leadership, Black Power and Black Liberation.  The FBI designed and enacted COINTELPRO during the Civil Rights era in an attempt to destabilize Black communities and prevent the rise of a "Black Messiah." Like the Alpha Black, our Messiahs are many and their missions will not be denied. Listen to special segments of Messiah Rising as part of The Alpha Black podcast.
