A sacrifice requires pain, suffering, heartache, discomfort, being lied on, being misunderstood. A sacrifice requires giving up something, it requires you to (risk losing) something, it requires putting yourself in dangerous situations for that which you love. A sacrifice requires being willing to be beaten, it requires being willing to shed blood, it requires being willing to go to prison, and it even requires being willing to lay down your life for that which you love.

If you are not experiencing any of those things, then you are not in a sacrifice.

If you love black people what sacrifice are you willing to make in order to make things better for blacks and future generations to come? Love requires a sacrifice.

All of the people that I admire and look up to, they all made a sacrifice in order to make things better blacks. They proved their love for us through the sacrifices that they made.

Let's take a look at some of them.

Marcus Garvey organized more black people than any other person person in the world, by 1922 over 6 million people all over the world had joined his organization called the Universal Negro Improvement Association, Garvey organization built factories, grocery stores, a hotel, a trucking company, and they owned 3 newspapers, a printing press and many other businesses where they employed 1000's of blacks.

Even though he was trying to make things better for black people, Garvey had enemies within the race and enemies outside of our race.

While in his office one day a black man walked in and shot Garvey, but he didn't die. The U.S. Government spied on Garvey, and they tried to break up his organization. The FBI hired their first black agent and they put him on the inside of Garvey's organization, and his job was to report back to them everything that Garvey was doing.

Eventually Garvey was lied on and falsely sent to prison. After his release from prison he was deported back to his home country of Jamaica.

This is Marcus Garvey being arrested.

Winnie Mandela was one of the leaders of the anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa. Winnie was active in the struggle for the liberation of black people before she met Nelson Mandela.

Over and over again she sacrificed her life to make things better for blacks.

There were some people around Winnie that she thought were her close friends, but some of those people turned against her and they betrayed her, they tried to help the Government destroy her. Those people that she thought were her friends, started reporting things to the Government about her that wasn't true. Those people around her were trained and paid by the Government to do that, and because of that she was arrested many times.

In 1969 Winnie Mandela was arrested and sent to prison by the South African Government for 491 days, and during the whole time that she was in prison she was in solitary confinement. For 200 days straight she didn't talk or communicate with another human being, she was also tortured while in prison with electrical current.

After getting out of prison Winnie continued to fight against the oppression of blacks. The South African Government then banned her from living in her hometown of Johannesburg, and she was sent to live in exile for 8 years, where she lived in a house with no electricity, no running water and no floors.

This is Winnie Mandela living in exile.

Patrice Lumumba fought against injustice done to blacks, and he went on to become the first elected Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He refused to allow America and Belgian to exploit his country of its natural resources.

America and Belgian Governments set out to destroy him, and on false charges he was arrested, tortured , shot and killed. After he was killed Patrice Lumumba body was hacked to pieces and dissolved in sulphuric acid by two Belgian police officers.

American president Dwight Eisenhower directly gave orders to the CIA to kill Patrice Lumumba.

The honorable Elijah Muhammad the leader of the Nation of Islam, he taught blacks to clean up their lives and he taught blacks to have pride in themselves, he taught blacks to pool their money together and create jobs for themselves.

Under his leadership the Nation of Islam had their own bank, they had grocery stores, they owned apartment buildings that they rented out.

The honorable Elijah Muhammad the Nation of Islam also had their own printing press and newspaper, which was the largest black circulated newspaper in America in the 1960's.

They owned many businesses and they created a lot of jobs for blacks under his leadership.

Under his leadership the Nation of Islam had their own schools in 46 cities, and they owned 1000's of acres of farmland, where they raised, cows, chickens and grew their own food.

Under the honorable Elijah Muhammad leadership the Nation of Islam had the best program in America for cleaning up drug dealers, drug users, prostitutes, gang members and criminals. They also cleaned up and reformed a lot of prisoners.

Even though the honorable Elijah Muhammad was doing a lot uplift and clean up black people, he became a target of the U.S. Government.

The FBI planted spies on the inside of the Nation of Islam to try and disrupt what the honorable Elijah Muhammad was doing.

He constantly received death threats, and on false charges he was arrested and sent to prison. He was sent to prison for 4 years for failing to register for the draft, even though he was over the draft age.

The FBI and the U.S. Government made up those charges to get him off the street, because they didn't want him speaking during World War 2.

This is the honorable Elijah Muhammad being arrested by the FBI in 1939.

Nelson Mandela was one of the leaders of the anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa. He was fighting against racial discrimination that blacks in South Africa were facing at the hands of that racist white run Government.

The American and South African Government labeled him a terrorist, even though he was not a terrorist, and he had never committed any terrorist act. They put that label on him so that he could be arrested. The CIA told the South African Government where Nelson Mandela was located when they were looking for him, the CIA aided in his arrest.

Nelson Mandela was arrested and he spent 27 years of his life in prison, because he chose to stand up and fight against injustice done to blacks.

While in prison a lot of his time was spent in solitary confinement, where he had to sleep on the floor. While in prison he was also forced to do hard labor, where he had to break up rocks.

When Nelson Mandela was in prison he was only allowed one visit a year.

Also during his time in prison the South African Government banned pictures of Nelson Mandela. Nobody was allowed to have a picture of Nelson Mandela in their home or anywhere else, nobody was even allowed to wear a shirt with Nelson Mandela picture on it, if caught with a picture of Nelson Mandela a person could be arrested and jailed.

Walter Sisulu was one of the leaders of the anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa, he was a mentor and teacher of Nelson Mandela. Walter was also one of the leaders of the African National Congress (ANC). He's the man that got Nelson Mandela to join the ANC, he said that he saw leadership potential in Mandela at a very early age, the two of them became close friends in the struggle.

Walter spent years of his life fighting against the oppression of blacks, because if this he was arrested and sent to prison for 26 years for fighting against Apartheid.


This is Walter and Nelson Mandela in prison together.

Malcolm X was one of the greatest black leaders in the world, he took the fear out of many black people by the way that he openly stood up for blacks on national television and radio shows. He spoke out boldly against white racism in a way that nobody had ever seen before.

Malcolm said things on national television that most black people were afraid to say in private. America and the world could not believe that a black man was standing up an openly speaking out against the evil that whites and the U.S. Government were doing to blacks, and by watching Malcolm do this, that took the fear out of a lot of black people. Soon afterwards other blacks started standing up and speaking boldly.

Malcolm went through a lot and he paid a heavy price to try an liberate and uplift blacks.

The FBI and the U.S. Government targeted Malcolm X day and night, they put FBI agents around him to try and spy on him, and they bugged all of his telephones that they could.

Malcolm was very popular outside of America, he was very popular in Africa and the Middle East, and this worried the FBI because his appeal had become international.

Malcolm was banned by the Government of France, he was not allowed to enter that country. While traveling in Egypt Malcolm was food poisoned.

Malcolm said that there were white CIA agents that followed him everywhere he went in Egypt.

On February 4th 1965, FBI director J Edgar Hoover wrote a confidential memo on Malcolm’s travel plans through Britain. He sent it to the CIA Director, the Army Intelligence (Intel) chief, the Naval Intel Director, and the Air Force counterintelligence chief, as well as Intel chiefs in London and Paris.

One such memorandum on Malcolm and African leaders went directly to the CIA director of covert action, Richard Helms, who had a key role in assassination plots.

On February 14th, 1965 Malcolm X home was firebombed days before he was killed, his home was bombed while his wife and children were in their bed sleeping.

Seven days later Malcolm was shot and killed, right before he took the stage to speak. Soon after Malcolm’s murder, a partially deleted FBI memo noted the CIA’s desire to get rid of Malcolm.

A high level African diplomat later said that the French Counter-Espionage Department reported that the CIA planned Malcolm’s murder.

These are some pictures of the bombing of Malcolm's home.

Martin Luther King Jr was the leader of the Civil Rights Movement in America. He went through a lot in his effort to fight against injustice done to blacks.

Dr. King was a target of the U.S. Government and the FBI. The FBI first put Dr. King under surveillance in 1955.

In September 1963 after the March on Washington, Attorney General Robert Kennedy gave the FBI permission to place bugs on all of Dr. King's telephones. They bugged his home telephone, his office phones, they bugged his hotel rooms. FBI Director J Edgar Hoover said that Dr. King was the most dangerous Negro leader in America.

Dr. King went through a lot, people called his home everyday with death threats, while marching people threw rocks at him, his home was bombed, and he constantly got attacked by the media. 168 American newspapers condemned Dr. King for opposing the Vietnam war.

In 1968 Martin Luther King Jr was shot and killed, Dr. King son Dexter said that president Lyndon Johnson had his father killed.

This is a picture of Dr. King home after it was bombed.

Minister Farrakhan has been fighting against injustice done to blacks for over 60 years. He's the most fearless black leader in the world today, he did something that nobody has ever done before, he organized over a million black men, in the Million Man March.

Black men from all over the world went to Washington D.C. for the Million Man March, the world had never seen anything like that.

But Minister Farrakhan has gone through a lot to try and make things better for blacks, he has always been a target of the U.S. Government, he has been denounced and evil spoken of even by some blacks, mainly black politicians.

In 1984 the whole U.S. Senate condemned Minister Farrakhan on the Senate floor in a 95 to 0 vote. Minister Farrakhan said that he could care less about the Senate condemning him, he said that it doesn't mean anything to him.

As a young leader in the Nation of Islam his home was bombed, and even today the British Government has banned him from entering that country.

The British came in and colonized blacks in Kenya and took their land. The British Government and the white settlers that took black people land then forced blacks to work for cheap labor on the land that was taken away from them.

The British essentially created a form of slavery, the black workers were mistreated any many were beat, if it seemed like they wasn't working hard enough. Some of the black workers were even beaten to death.

Blacks in Kenya got tired of being oppressed by the white British, and they created an armed revolt called the Mau Mau. Dedan Kimathi is the man that created the Mau Mau.

Through the Mau Mau blacks in Kenya armed themselves and started fighting back against the British, some reports say that at one point the Mau Mau had over a million members.

The British military thought that they could defeat the Mau Mau in a short period of time, but that wasn't the case at all. The Mau Mau fought against the British military for 12 years, and both sides lost people.

11,000 Mau Mau members were killed and over 1000 of their members were convicted and hung.

The British rounded up a lot of blacks and put them in concentration camps. Any black person that they assumed was a part of the Mau Mau was put in concentration, most of the people that they put in concentration camps were not Mau Mau, they just started rounding up blacks and putting them in concentration.

Nothing could stop the Mau Mau in their fight against oppression, even though some of their members were killed an arrested, the Mau Mau continued fighting until Kenya gained its independence from the British.

In the end the Mau Mau revolution helped to free Kenya from the British rule.

This is Dedan Kimathi, the leader and founder of the Mau Mau.

He was shot and later arrested, and in 1957 he was put to death by hanging. That's the sacrifice that he made to help blacks in Kenya get their independence and freedom from the British.

Jomo Kenyatta was one of the organizers of the Mau Mau, and he was arrested and spent 9 years in prison for his role in the Mau Mau. Jomo Kenyatta later went on to become the first president of Kenya, once Kenya got its independence from the British. His son Uhuru Kenyatta is now the president of Kenya today.

Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela were big supporters of the Mau Mau, here is a video of Malcolm talking about the Mau Mau.

Harriet Tubman risked her life to free as many black slaves as she could, she wasn't happy just getting her freedom, she wanted to see all black people free. She kept going back to slave plantations time and time again to free more slaves.

Harriet Tubman put her life on the line by doing that, but that's the kind of sacrifice that she was willing to make in order to see black people free. She knew that by doing that she could be killed.
