“The greatest weapon in the hands of our group today in America is our press.
The truth will never be told about a disadvantaged minority by the general press of any country,
whether that minority be racial, political or religious. Unless we express ourselves through papers of our own,
the truth about us will not be told.
Our papers are our only hope of shoveling ourselves from out under the avalanche of lies
that are annually let loose upon us. A strong free press is the best possible safeguard of the liberties
in general promotion and defense of the interests of a strong, free people.”
– Prophet Noble Drew Ali
