John McKnight Speaking on Systemic and Institutional Racism in 1968 (50 Years Ago)

I have used this video in many training sessions over the years and find that it has been a mainstay/pillar in the continual understanding and education of systemic and institutional racism.

John, along with so many others (James Baldwin, Medgar Evers, Bayard Rustin, Fannie Lou Hamer, Angela Davis, Fred Hampton, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Yuri Kochiyama, Hubert Harrison, Lerone Bennett, Jr., Nina Simone, etc.) were very evolved in their thinking; understanding, responding to and organizing against the oppressive effects of Whiteness.

Watch, listen and learn.
