Being woman and gay-positive before it was cool
This is a link to Huey Newton’s wonderful speech from 1970 about incorporating the budding feminist and gay liberation movements into the Black Panthers’ black power movement. He recognizes his own personal prejudice and proceeds to describe why it is wrong and how it compares to the way blacks were/are treated. Part of it is trying to find strategic allies, but part of it is also recognizing that they are not the only ones who are oppressed, and that those who are and who seek to change that should be welcomed and encouraged, not demeaned and silenced. It’s pretty great, especially considering the frequent assumption that black men are rarely feminists and usually homophobic. It’s not super long, so it makes a nice study break.
