Returning to the African Core: Cabral and the Erasure of the Colonized Elite

Charles Peterson

Abstract


the bourgeoning bourgeoisie behind A. U. C. gates
bristled and forgot all the promises
that I. B. M. and Harvard Law had made
recognized into the streets
running like niggers set free
burning cop cars and tumbling struggle buggies
Morehouse men progressed to renegades
and Spelman ladies soiled their white gloves
on sharp daggers of American blackness . . .
Graduation Day

her [/his] own people, isnt well educated.
Call your congress woman, your senator, your mayor
Its time for all the scholars to unite with the players.
