Elaine Brown w/ FreeMix Radio:
Elaine Brown became, in 1974, the first and only woman to lead the Black Panther Party. In her autobiographical memoir, A Taste of Power: A Black Woman's Story, Brown recounts her life from the ghettos of North Philadelphia to her leadership in one of the most important and militant civil rights groups in U. S. history.
Seize the Time, Inc., is dedicated to promoting the vision of Elaine
Brown, once chairman of the Black Panther Party and now author and activist.
The phrase Seize the Time comes from the title song of Elaine's first album
of music, recorded in 1969, a declaration of the oppressed that the time for
freedom is now and a plea to seize the time.
The majority of people in the world remain poor and oppressed. It is
time for an immediate end to this suffering, an end to poverty, war,
oppression, racism, sexism and class disparity. It is time to create a
world in which all people will have everything they need to live a decent
life, in peace and in harmony with nature. We are committed to spreading
this ideal through sales and distribution of our materials to those willing
to become "underground messengers," believing this is the most effective way
for the powerless to deliver a powerful message.
