Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) Speeches

I regret to inform you that this wonderful youtube channel is no longer available. I only hope that you were able to benefit from the great videos that were shared with us while it was active.

Carmichael/Ture Speaking in London, England

The youtube channel is gone 

This channel, at time of  this writing, consists of about 80 videos between a minute and a half to almost 2hours in length. Spanning from Carmichael's/Ture's time with SNCC through when he moved to Guinea-Conakry. The videos cover a wide range of topics such as Politics, MLK, Malcolm X, The Police, The Media, Guns, Gangs,  Education, SNCC, Vietnam, Black Power, Religion, Revolution, Pan Africanism and so much more. I haven't watched them all but it appears that the bulk of the videos contain live footage of Carmichael/Ture speaking. I will probably include this post on the blog to be posted in advance of Black History Month 2013 because there is so much interesting material, from the civil rights movement of the 1960s through the 1990s, that you might want to check it out and share it yourself during BHM.

Kwame Ture (aka ; Stokely Carmichael June 29, 1941 – November 15, 1998) was a Trinidadian-American black activist active in the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement. Growing up in the United States from the age of eleven, he graduated from Howard University and rose to prominence in the civil rights and Black Power movements, first as a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, pronounced "snick") and later as the "Honorary Prime Minister" of the Black Panther Party.
Initially an integrationist, Carmichael later became affiliated with black nationalist and Pan-Africanist movements.  He popularized the term "Black Power".  Following his expulsion from the Black Panthers in 1967 and widespread riots following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, Carmichael moved to Guinea-Conakry in 1969. He resided there for the rest of his life, except for receiving medical treatment in the US late in life. - From Wikipedia
I'm adding some Ture videos here so you can sample the previous channel.
