Africa's Freedom
The tide which is sweeping Africa today cannot be
stayed.  No power on earth is great enough to halt or
reverse the trend.  Its march is as relentless and
inexorable as the passage of time.  The day is long
overdue for a change of attitude on the part of those
nations which have heretofore sought to hinder or
impede this movement or which have been content in
the past to remain passive in the face of the
impassioned cries for freedom, for justice, for the right
to stand with their fellowmen as equals, which have
gone up from this Continent.  It is time for them to enlist
their sympathetic efforts
on behalf of the struggle of the African peoples to gain
the place in the world which is their God-given
birthright.  Those who hail or refuse to do so, those who
lack the vision and foresight to realize that Africa is
emerging into a new era, that Africans will no longer be
denied the rights which are inalienably theirs, will not
alter or reverse the course of history, but will suffer the
inevitable consequences of their refusal to accept reality.
