“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind…” – Marcus Garvey
FYI: the lyrics to this song are derived from a 1937 speech given by the Pan-Africanist, Marcus Garvey. Le prophète auquel il est fait allusion dans la chanson n’est autre que M. Garvey.
