Summary:
Marvin Holloway, Charles Cobb, and Courtland Cox talk on the subject of what Africa should mean to us today, or what is our relationship to the African continent? They state the importance of examining who we are, and where and what we come from; and understanding ourselves as African people. They speak about the African people's struggles against white supremacy, racism, and enslavement in the United States and throughout the world. They also address the possibility and difficulties of establishing black power and control within the context of the United States. And they ask what is that we have to do as a people, and what is that we can do as a people?
