 Started out as attempt at a portrait of a young Stokely Carmichael, but my attention span is wavering today. Kwame Toure (his grown up name) had a lot to say, some of it preserved on YouTube. His last talks before he died are worth a listen.

 a soul from the '60's ('70's) - we thought we were ending War - naïve, but protest was so important. . . we thought we were ending discrimination. but things have changed a lot - even if the younger generation doesn't think so.

 Stokely/Kwame never got the kind of mainstream attention/adoration of MLK and even Malcolm X, perhaps because he wasn't shot so he lived long enough to outlive the heroic age of the black revolution he had done so much to ignite.

 And he never backed down, never moderated his views. But I'm told he was he nice guy (by my brother who met him long enough to chat a bit). His sense of humor is wry and touching in his interviews.

 And to top it all off, he was one of Miriam Makeba's husbands—how cool is that!!? (So was Hugh Masekela, who heard live several times (awesome and also funny)).
