Member Position Papers

Economic Justice for Black America: An Unfinished Agenda 1963-2013
James B. Stewart, Professor Emeritus, Penn State University

“The white liberal must affirm that absolute justice for the Negro simply means, in the Aristotelian sense, that the Negro must have ‘his due.’  There is nothing abstract about this.  It is as concrete as having a good job, a good education, a decent house and a share of power.  It is, however, important to understand that giving a man his due may often mean giving him special treatment.  I am aware of the fact that this has been a troublesome concept for many liberals, since it conflicts with their traditional ideal of equal opportunity and equal treatment of people according to their individual merits.  But this is a day which demands new thinking and the re-evaluation of old concepts.  A society that has done something special against the Negro for hundreds of years must now do something special for him to compete on a just and equal basis.”

Us, Culture and Struggle: Ultimately Engaged on the Ground".
Dr. Maulana Karenga, Professor and Chair, Department of Africana Studies,

 California State University, Long Beach | Senior Fellow, Molefi Kete Asante Institute

"The founding and developmental unfolding of our organization Us, September 7, 1965, was in a fateful and furious year, a time and context of decisive turning. It was the year of the assassination and martyrdom of Min. Malcolm X, master teacher, continuous stu-dent, and constant soldier who would not blink, step back, waiver or walk away from the struggle even in the fierce face of certain death. It was the year of the righteous rage and resistance of the Watts Revolt, a fiery sign and symbol of similar things to come throughout the country. And it was the year of the defini-tive decline of the Civil Rights phase of the Black Freedom Movement and the defiant rise of its period of Black Power with its stress on self-determination, self-respect and self-defense, and Blackness as a moral, social and aesthetic ideal to which our organization, Us, and philosophy, Kawaida, contributed in both essential and expansive ways."
