We cannot obtain sovereignty without first identifying and mastering the power required to create and sustain it. However, accessing, mobilizing and exercising our power toward this goal is not as difficult a process as it may seem if we take the time to look for it within ourselves and tap into our ancestral memory. The two essays within Sovereignty and Remembrance address the need for doing this preliminary, visionary, nationbuilding work. Both give us ample reason to reflect on the meaning and importance of power and memory and why they will need to be seriously reconsidered by our Warriors if Afrikan people are to again become whole.
