SHERROD: We must stop the white man and his Uncle Tom from stealing our elections. We must not be afraid to vote black. We must not be afraid to turn a black out who votes against our interests.
In a few days or weeks the FCC will announce that we won a full power community-owned radio station in Albany, Georgia, a result of years of work. Tears that we shed so many times when the TV and the newspaper comes out the day of an election or day before an election and tell white folk all over wherever we're running somebody for an office that blacks are gonna take the office over and thousands are coming to the polls. But we had no means of communicating with our people.
It's a blessing that finally we will have a radio station to cover thousands of people.
