Legacy.

PETER BAILEY:

His legacy?

CARROLL BLUE:

Black national--

PETER BAILEY:

His legacy, ah, he was a continuation of the whole Black Nationalists concept. He was a follower of Marcus Garvey, Martin Delany and people of that type. People who still, he was not some isolated, he was a part of a continuity in Black American history. And it is the, and his legacy was that he, he reached more people with it than anyone else did. Not because I'm going to say that he was better than these men who preceded him but because of the change in the time. There was more better communications. You were able to reach many more people in many more different kind of ways, with television for instance, that they did not have. So his, his message, he carried the, the nationalists message further than any of them had been able to because of, of the times at which, in which he operated.
