Zawadi Books Suggested Reading from Kenneth & Sharon Holley

“We want Education for Our People That Exposes the True Nature of This Decadent American Society. We Want Education That Teaches Us Our True History and Our Role in the Present-Day Society. We believe in an educational system that will give to our people knowledge of the self. If you do not have knowledge of yourself and your position in the society and in the world, then you will have little chance to relate to anything else.” -Black Panther Party: Ten- Point Program, No. 5.
