To Complete Research for The War against Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) and
To Help Build the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)
From March 1965 to July 1969, Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) traveled from Lowndes County, Alabama to every major city in the United States and key cities and countries on every continent to help organize and build support for the Black Panther Movement-Party (BPM-I) and its imprisoned leadership. He continued to support the Black Panther Party’s and Black Liberation Army’s prisoners of war, political prisoners and cadre in exile for the rest of his life.
Governments and organizations (for profit and not-for-profit) in every corner of the world (right, center and left) waged a ruthless war to prevent this independent, militant, Black Nationalist and Pan-Africanist movement-party from being built. Having failed in this initial goal, they waged a decades-long war to co-opt and control, contain or crush it. Kwame’s contributions to the BPM-P’s birth and growth have been minimized, distorted and deformed, and “whited out” of history. This war continues and intensifies as we approach the 50th anniversary of its founding.
In 1967, Kwame also joined the Movement to Take Kwame Nkrumah Back to Ghana, the Democratic Party of Guinea under the leadership of Ahmed Sekou Toure, the Pan-Africanist Congress of Azania, and the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party which was founded by Kwame Nkrumah. For the next 31 years of his life, until his transition on November 15, 1998, he traveled to every continent, and many countries and cities in the world supporting and helping build these and other revolutionary movements and parties, especially the A-APRP. The A-APRP (GC) inherits and continues this revolutionary theory and practice. This history has not been told. Few people in academia or the movement are qualified to tell it.
“No participation, no right to observation! No investigation, no right to speak!”
Bob Brown is retracing as many of Kwame’s organizational footsteps as possible, given the current world political and military climate, and scarcity of resources. He is coming to your campus and community, city and country in 2014 to help build new and re-establish old branches of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and to help re-establish old and build new relationships with revolutionary allies. He is also coming to your area to complete research for The War against Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) which he and Dr. Christian Davenport are co-authoring.
Bob’s 50-years of participation in the student and youth, civil and human rights, Black Power and Pan-African, socialist and peace movements; and his work with the Congress of Racial Equality, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the Black Panther Party, the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and with Kwame Ture have earned him the right to observe. His exhaustive and unparalleled investigation, and his encyclopedic knowledge of Kwame’s contributions and achievements have earned him the right to speak. He must observe and speak now, or forever hold his peace. He must also continue his life-long, revolutionary, Pan-African and Internationalist work, study and struggle.
Christian Davenport is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor; a Faculty Associate at the Center for Political Studies, Institute for Social Research, and a Global Fellow at the Peace Research Institute Oslo. His professional and personal interests include political conflict and violence – particularly that involving governments and those affiliated with them (e.g., genocide/politicide, mass killing, torture, bans, curfews, beatings, arrests for political purposes and domestic spying). He has looked at both global patterns and individual cases (the United States, Rwanda, India, Northern Ireland as well as more recently Darfur, Sudan and Mexico).
Chris is an expert in archiving massive collections of information relevant to conflict and analyzing the macro and micro determinants of contentious politics. His publications include: “Media Bias, Perspective and State Repression: The Black Panther Party;” “When Democracies Kill: Reflections from the US, India and Northern Ireland;” “Protesting While Black? The Differential Policing of American Activism;” “The Puzzle of Iraqi Mortality: Surges, Civilian Deaths and Alternative Meanings;” “Velvet Glove, Iron Fist or Even Hand? Protest Policing in the United States;” “Licensing Repression: Dissent, Threats and State Repression in the United States;” and “Understanding Covert Repressive Action: The Case of the US Government Against the Republic of New Africa.”
The War against Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) is the authorized biography of Kwame Ture and it is the definitive history of the COINTELPRO and cointelpro-like operations waged against him, and against the movements, organizations, governments, activities and events and leading personalities with whom he collaborated, competed and conflicted. This book is explosive, and it will change the historical narrative and discourse; a much needed and refreshing change!
