    I come here tonight and plead with you. Be proud of yourself and believe that you’re somebody. I said to a group last night, “Nobody else can do this for us.” No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian proclamation can do this for us; no Kennedysonian or Johnsonian civil rights bill can do this for us. If the negro is to be free he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign, with a pen an ink of self-asserted manhood, his own Emancipation Proclamation. Don’t let anybody take your manhood. Be proud of our heritage; as somebody said earlier tonight, we don’t have anything to be ashamed of.

    Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language.They made everything black, ugly and evil. Look in your dictionary and see the synonyms of the word “black.” It’s always something degrading and low and sinister. Look at the word, “white.” It’s always something pure, high. Well I want to get the language right tonight.

    I want to get it so right that everybody here will cry out, “Yes I’m Black and I’m proud of it. I’m Black and beautiful.”

    Martin Luther King, Jr. -Somebody Told a Lie

    "If the negro is to be free he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign, with a pen and ink of self-asserted manhood, his own Emancipation Proclamation."

    The first book on Maroons in the United States is coming out today. Slavery’s Exiles: The Story of the American Maroons is the work of Sylviane A. Diouf, an award-winning historian who is also the Schomburg Center’s own Curator of Digital Collections and Director of the Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute. 
    Based on years of research Slavery’s Exiles presents a detailed portrait of the maroons; from isolated individuals to families and large communities. Who the maroons were, what led them to choose this way of life over alternatives, what forms of marronage they created, what their daily lives were like, how they organized themselves to survive, and how their particular story fits into the larger narrative of slave resistance are some of the many questions that the book seeks to answer.
    Slavery’s Exiles, which is available in hardcover and ebook, can be previewed and purchased here
