On a recent afternoon, exhausted by a cycle of Black History Month engagements that coincided with the publication of “Second Agreement,” Williams declared his own struggle for acceptance. Williams worked for years to expand and revise the book before publishing a second edition. He had it published by the famous Third World Press of Chicago, a company in black possession. When the book was published in 1987, it received great recognition from the African-American critical community. [Citation required] Kennell Jackson of Stanford University says, “This is the book that students often come with. The evidence is there, but Williams gathered it too easily. I speak of it as historical propaganda, not in a bad way, but as a force to maintain and popularize an important territory. If you respect this agreement, you can go around the world with an open heart and no one can rape you. You can say, “I love you” without fear of being ridiculed or rejected. You can ask for what you need. Sitting in his apartment, with the urban tunes of 16th Street competing in his soft voice, Williams says criticism has never been a deterrent because he expected his professional life to be lonely.

Initially enrolled at Dunbar High School, the city`s black academic showcase, Williams joined Armstrong. “I didn`t think anything was incompatible with mechanical drawing and literature,” he says warmly. Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; So you don`t need to personally take what you hear in your own head. Don`t take anything personally, because by taking things personally, you are preparing to suffer for nothing.

“Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered bin I,” wrote American songwriter Lorenz Hart about the feeling of love. It is blessed and euphoric, as we all know. But it`s also addictive, chaotic and dazzling. Without careful supervision, his wild wind can swallow your life and leave you a bit like the text of a country song: without a wife, […] 1943, like the first of his five books. “The Raven,” a historical novel about Edgar Allen Poe, has been published. Williams asked to erase his image from the cover of the book. “It was a kind of experience. I just wanted to be known as a writer,” Williams says with the strange atmosphere of serene generosity and selfish impatience of people who have reputation and years. John Kinard, the director of the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum, where Williams recently spoke to an overcrowded crowd, talks about his mysticism. “A few years ago, a museum director came from Ghana and said, `Let`s go see Chancellor Williams.`” I had never heard of him, but I went. When Williams finished talking about ancient history, our cultural struggles, the sociological racism that is a part of all of us, I thought, “I don`t think I lived that long without knowing this man,” Kinard says.

Fortunately, he gave them his point of view. “The same facts have confronted the race since emancipation,” Williams says as he discusses his currency. “We are so satisfied with progress – what is progress? Those we are told to cry out for glory hallelujah, those who take others for granted? This is Drivel. As long as we adopt this mentality, we wouldn`t go anywhere.” “And I`ve read everything about Booker T.
