"Well, 1965 will probably be the longest, hottest, bloodiest summer that has yet been seen in the United States since the beginning of the Black Revolution, primarily because the same causes that existed in the winter of 1964 still exist in January, in February, of 1965. Now, these are causes of inferior housing, inferior employment, inferior education. All of the evils of a bankrupt system still exist where black Americans are concerned, and the popular unrest that exists has been increased tremendously now that the African nations themselves have shown support for the black struggle in America in our efforts to get our human rights. This gives us added incentive to step up our struggle and, as I said, it will be the longest, hottest, bloodiest summer of the entire Black Revolution."
