Program Title:
Black Americans need a domestic desert storm / William Gibson.
PRA Archive #: 
TZ0056.05
Description: 

Talk by Dr. William Gibson in which he points to the reality of African-Americans going to fight in the Desert Storm operation, only to come home to a country where they are denied political and social rights. Gibson begins by comparing the war fervor of the Persian Gulf to that of World War I, including the disappointment of African-American sliders upon their return from combat. The Gulf War was not about democracy, Gibson continues, for spreading racism in the United States is limiting opportunities for Blacks. There is a need for a united African-American movement in America in order to break a dependency on the white power structure.|BLACK AMERICANS NEED A DOMESTIC DESERT STORM / William Gibson. - Talk by Dr. William Gibson in which he points to the reality of African-Americans going to fight in the Desert Storm operation, only to come home to a country where they are denied political and social rights.
