According to its founders, the assimilation of the African- American would unquestionably go through loss of identity; hence their quest for sovereignty.

If kept in the right spirit, it means a record of things both seen and unseen, all recorded in strictly conscientious fashion? It means, too, that one must crystallize one’s secret thoughts and longings and desires into written words, thereby giving speech to hitherto inarticulaye [sic] voices.
