“If they don’t have education, then they’re no where… They’re nowhere because they don’t even know why they’re doing what they’re doing. You might get people caught up in an emotionalist movement… You might get them caught because they’re poor and they want something. And if they’re not educated, they’ll want more and before you know it, they’ll be capitalist and before you know it, we’ll have Negro imperialist.”

Chairman Fred Hampton, 1969
