“Optimistic, because even though the year of Obama's birth Herbert Lee, a black farmer with nine children, was shot in the head for trying to register black voters, it was also the year the Freedom Rides rocked the South and established a generation of youth leaders. Optimistic, because even though the year of my birth the Klan bombed four little black girls in a Birmingham church and Medgar Evers and President Kennedy were gunned down, it was also the year that established our road map for today - America's dispossessed marching on Washington in unprecedented numbers to demand freedom and articulate our dream.”
Faith Adiele, Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times

“I think that the individual cannot exist in a vacuum. Cannot exist in isolation. He is the member of a tribe, a church, a family, a political party or a social club. He is influenced by these things and does himself influence them. We don't live for ourselves. We live for others. Perhaps in the African scale of values, freedom ranks quite high. I would say that perhaps the best role any group ought to play is that of freedom.”
Faith Adiele, Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times

“I am a new generation of Africans. We believe in the future role of that continent. We are convinced it has a destiny and a contribution to make the world community. It has long languished, slept, misunderstood, exploited, pushed around, and spoken for. Now it is Africa's hour to do and speak to the world. In the African scale of values, freedom ranks quite high.”
