Four years later when I graduated from high school, there were only a handful of white students who graduated with me. That fall, after the summer of 1967, I considered myself a young revolutionary. My study of revolutionary history and theory intensified. I became a serious student of Malcolm X, reading and listening to his speeches. I became an active organizer of black students in my junior high and then high school. I was aware of and followed intensely the developments around the BPP and the deliberations at the Newark BORN INTO THE STORM 23 Black Power Conference, the second of four such conferences that would lead to the founding of the Congress of African People (CAP) in 1970.

They did this on every front. They raised and sent money. The Jewish teachers thoroughly discussed their point of view of the issues related to the war in the classrooms and gave the students information and instruction that it was their obligation to support Israel in the war.
