Supporters gathered at a fundraising tribute for Kwame Ture, who was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. They talked about his civil rights activities since the 1960s and expressed their affection for him and their gratitude for his work. Mr. Ture spoke about the need for coordinated long-range planning and thinking as well as action by African-Americans to obtain more political and economic power. He emphasized that the masses must unite in an independent movement to attain this goal.
