Stevieslaw: Soul on Ice

I am doing some research into the happenings of 1968, a truly terrible year, with the thought that it might cheer me up about the present. I came across this quote from Eldridge Cleaver in Soul on Ice. Perhaps, it’s deja vu all over again.

“It is not an overstatement to say that the destiny of the entire human race depends on what is going on in America today. This is a staggering reality to the rest of the world; they must feel like passengers in a supersonic jet liner who are forced to watch helplessly while a passel of drunks, hypes, freaks, and madmen fight for the controls and the pilot’s seat. —ELDRIDGE CLEAVER, Soul on Ice, 1968”
