If it weren’t for visits from old friends and other African Americans I meet who come to Cuba, I’d probably be in some kind of time warp.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) My life wasn’t beautiful and creative before I became politically active. My life was totally changed when I began to struggle.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) Are you ready to sacrifice to end world hunger? To sacrifice to end colonialism? To end neo-colonialism? To end racism? To end sexism?  (Assata Shakur Quotes) Love is contraband in Hell, cause love is an acid that eats away bars. But you, me, and tomorrow hold hands and make vows that struggle will multiply. The hacksaw has two blades. The shotgun has two barrels. We are pregnant with freedom. We are a conspiracy  (Assata Shakur Quotes) Hip Hop can be a very powerful weapon to help expand young people’s political and social consciousness. But just as with any weapon, if you don’t know how to use it, if you don’t know where to point it, or what you’re using it for, you can end up shooting yourself in the foot or killing your sisters or brothers  (Assata Shakur Quotes) In my opinion while lynchings were quite possibly the most heinous crimes ever witnessed in American history, they helped in bringing people together for a sole purpose.

I can only share my vision with you of the future, about what freedom is  (Assata Shakur Quotes) The U. S. is becoming more hostile to Black people and other people of color. Racism is running rampant and xenophobia is on the rise  (Assata Shakur Quotes) We had to learn that we’re beautiful. We had to relearn something forcefully taken from us. We had to learn about Black power. People have power if we unite. We learned the importance of coming together and being active  (Assata Shakur Quotes) People ask me if I miss the States. I miss African Americans. But not the U.S. government or all the things they put me through. I miss African American culture, our speech, dance and cooking.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) I think anybody who is honestly struggling against racism must struggle against imperialism and vice versa.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) Before going back to college, I knew I didn’t want to be an intellectual, spending my life in books and libraries without knowing what the hell is going on in the streets. Theory without practice is just as incomplete as practice without theory. The two have to go together.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) If we are not committed to saving this earth we will be buying designer air filters and gas masks with little Nike swishes on them.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) The US has attacked countries like Grenada, Panama, Libya... the list of victims of US terrorism is almost infinite. And the US government’s participation in torture, whether in El Salvador, Guatemala, Chile... is well-documented and widely known.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) Hip Hop can be a very effective way to reach young people and teach them about current political and social issues.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) I’ve always been a student of different ways of looking at the world, different religions. That’s been part of my survival mechanism, and also part of my curiosity as a person.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) I think that one of the great things that the Cuban revolution has done is preserve history  (Assata Shakur Quotes) How lovely it is to live with a sense of community.

That is more fun, too. That is more loving. It’s really working to create something beautiful.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) The methods of peaceful protests are not capable of being effective, because in reality most people pay little attention to things that are not abrasive.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.  (Assata Shakur Quotes) To become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave  (Assata Shakur Quotes) At this time I’d like to say a few words especially to my sisters: SISTERS.
