“Stokley, A Life” – Stokely Carmichael, Controversial Black Activist Called for Black Power
 
 

By Dr. Peniel Joseph - The Video: Watch the amazing video from 1966 and see what was going on in Alabama elections back then. You will be shocked at the similarities and Stokley Carmichael's community organizing efforts. How did Stokley Carmichael organize black voters to overcome White controlled power structures.

The Book: Stokely Carmichael, the charismatic and controversial black activist, stepped onto the pages of history when he called for “Black Power” during a speech one Mississippi night in 1966. A firebrand who straddled both the American civil rights and Black Power movements, Carmichael would stand for the rest of his life at the center of the storm he had unleashed that night. In Stokely, preeminent civil rights scholar Peniel E. Joseph presents a groundbreaking biography of Carmichael, using his life as a prism through which to view the transformative African American freedom struggles of the twentieth century.

The Living Word

Isaiah 9:6-7 (KJV)

King James Version

6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7: Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.


 

HE’S IN THE NORTH

By Diane Chappell

We’ve all been told that Santa Claus, lives at the North Pole. He is in the North.

Well I’ve come to tell you today, He is not the only one in the north, the greatest north.

Isaiah 14:13 says, “for thou hast said in thine heart I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.”

Santa Claus will be coming from the North Pole, to bring the children, toys and happiness and delight on Christmas night. This will be a great delight on that night.

I’ve learned, the Most High God, who is in the north of Heaven, and exactly where that is, is not for us to know, but where he is, we all do want to go.

He sent his only son, so that if we live holy and right, we will have eternal joy, peace and happiness, where there will be no night. Don’t you want to go, aren’t you glad, now that you know.

Mankind had it a little right; but the real and greatest north that has eternal life is beyond man’s natural eyesight.

~He’s~~~~~ in the North~ MERRY CHRISTMAS
