Zoom THE DEACONS: ARMED RESISTANCE IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
By Oguejiofo Annu
A secret militia of armed Black men ready to defend themselves in those white-supremacy hey days of the 1950s and 1960s.Does it sound fantastic?But this is true history. The civil right movement was not won on a platter of gold. It did not come about due to the inherent goodness of the so-called white political class who engineered the oppression of black people in the first place.The civil right movement was a two armed pincer movement. There was the moral condemnation, and spiritual indictment front led by people like Rosa Park, Martin Luther King jnr, Malcom X and others. It was characterized by powerful rhetoric and civil disobedience.Then there was the faceless, nameless, cloak and dagger aspect, where armed so-called black men battled it out with armed so-called white men, including police and KKK.The violent aspect of the African American Emancipation movement has been hidden behind an officially sanitized version of a genial, peaceful, church-type civil right movement.

A secret militia of armed Black men ready to defend themselves in those white-supremacy hey days of the 1950s and 1960s.

Does it sound fantastic?

But this is true history. The civil right movement was not won on a platter of gold. It did not come about due to the inherent goodness of the so-called white political class who engineered the oppression of black people in the first place.

The civil right movement was a two armed pincer movement. There was the moral condemnation, and spiritual indictment front led by people like Rosa Park, Martin Luther King jnr, Malcom X and others. It was characterized by powerful rhetoric and civil disobedience.

Then there was the faceless, nameless, cloak and dagger aspect, where armed so-called black men battled it out with armed so-called white men, including police and KKK.

The violent aspect of the African American Emancipation movement has been hidden behind an officially sanitized version of a genial, peaceful, church-type civil right movement.
