Dr. Stevenson Speaks On Revolution in Black Community
May 8, 1970
This May 8, 1970, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) discusses an appearance by Dr. John Marshall Stevenson (now Kilimanjaro) before a political science class at UNCG. Stevenson, a professor at North Carolina A&T State University and founder of the Carolina Peacemaker newspaper, spoke on the status of the revolutionary movement within the black community. Stevenson stated that the term “Negro” was holding back the black sense of identity, discussed the effects of slavery and drugs on the community, and complained about those who say that equal rights will “take time.”
