ADVICE TO THE YOUNG INTELLECTUALS

"History is rich with the accumulated experiences of other peoples and nationalities who have gone through similar struggles and had the same aspirations as the oppressed in South Africa. If the young intellectuals would drink from the well of knowledge of the past, study and draw sustenance from this rich treasure, which is the heritage of mankind; if they could see their struggles as part of the whole, of the forward march of mankind, and find inspiration in the struggles and successes of the other oppressed peoples throughout the world today - then they would not feel weighing upon them so heavily the pressure of the local tyranny.

If they understood their tasks and realised what they are called upon to contribute to the struggle, then they would not rest until they had gone out to the people, till they felt that their ideas were taking shape and finding practical application in the daily struggles of the masses. The people are ready, more than ready for a lead. The leadership dare not let them down. It falls upon the All-African Convention, the federal body which is the mouthpiece of the African people, to give them that lead."

"The Awakening of a People" 1950
