Negroes with Guns / Edition 1by Robert F. Williams, Timothy Tyson, Gloria House
Pub. Date: 06/28/1998
Publisher: Wayne State University Press
First published in 1962, Negroes with Guns is the story of a southern black community's struggle to arm itself in self-defense against the Ku Klux Klan and other racist groups. Frustrated and angered by violence condoned or abetted by the local authorities against blacks, the small community of Monroe, North Carolina, brought the issue of armed self-defense to the forefront of the civil rights movement. The single most important intellectual influence on Huey P. Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party, Negroes with Guns is a classic story of a man who risked his life for democracy and freedom.

this book will make you wonder why you've never heard of it. the reason is the same as that for Robert Wiliams' present address, and why the Negro is no better off today than 40 years ago. so read it. NØ! think, (about why you want to read it), then ask yourself are you ready to make the necessary change. then act.
This book will open your eyes to all injustice and hypocrisy. A Must-Read for all people, colored and white alike.
