    Thanks much for that clip Olokun

    I was privileged to have attended the Black Power Conference in UWI St Augustine a few months ago and it was really something to interatc with many of those persons who were the activists and even opponents back in 1970. There were some very interesting stories and papers including a very revealing story of Randolph Borroughs by Josanne Leonard who was a schoolgirl at the time but was very politically active even then. A colleague of mine and I are thinking of putting together a small book featuring the surviving NUFF guerillas. Do you or any Imixer know of any personally? I would like to interview them

    Yeah, and when Borroughs went after his family -- going so far as to carrying Josanne up to Lady Young lookout and threatening to shoot her and throw her off -- that practically broke his spirit. So many things about those times people should learn about.
