Stokey Carmichael also known as Kwame
Ture, was a very powerful individul in 1964, up until his death. He
was the chairperson of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee
and served as prime minister for the active group, Black Panthers.
His main goal was equality and improving
civil rights for African Americans.While he preached the phrase "Black
Power", he definitely practiced it also. He was one of the contributors
that called for all the organizations such as the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference, NAACP, and Nation of Islam to come together.
The unity of these groups would make the African American community
much stronger. Stokey had a brillinat idea which was to use the media
for notoriety. If the organizations could get publicity for their
campaign they could get more people to support their cause.Where there
was unity there was strength.
