Description
Description
7/27/1967 H. RAP BROWN: H. RAP BROWN - Chairman of SNCC - The Student NonViolent Coordinating Committee. Brown asks how black leaders can ask protestors to act non-violently in the face of violence in America. "Violence is as American as cherry pie. "TRANSCRIPT: We say to these leaders, how can you tell black people to be nonviolent, and at the same time condone the sending of white killers into the black communities? It's something wrong. We are going to control our communities by any means necessary. We built the country up, we'll burn it down. You can quote that. I say violence is necessary. Violence is a part of America's culture. It is as American as cherry pie.
