Message to the Community
from PCOL Convener, Rahim Islam

If Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcom X, Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad, Frederick Douglas, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman or any of other of our great leaders (pre-1960) were to miraculously return today, they would not know this Black America nor would they recognize this Black leadership. They wouldn’t believe what Blacks have to work with yet the Black community, in many respects, has lost ground and hardly any evidence exists that the movement for freedom, justice, and equality is being waged. What would also give them tremendous concern, given the level of Black despair, is the lack of any real sense of urgency as our Black Community is more passive now than ever before.
