"When I say that I am Black I am not defining myself as the so-called white man’s polar opposite, nor am I describing my skin complexion which is clearly dark brown to anyone who can see. When I tell you that I am Black, I am referring to my greater cosmic identity which predates my descent into this holy grail of experience made of flesh, blood, and bone.

I am the compelling mystery that conceals the light of luminous stars; I am the unlimited range of possibilities staring back at you when you gaze at the vast night sky.  As a microcosmic expression of the entire universe, my soul is beyond the jurisdiction of any terrestrial court or government."
