Rendezvous of Victory

"But the work of man is only just beginning and it remains to man to conquer all the violence entrenched in the recesses of his passion. And no race possesses the monopoly of beauty, of intelligence, of force, and there is a place for all at the rendezvous of victory." Aime Cesaire, "Cahier d'un Retour un Pays Natal", in James, "The Black Jacobins", 1938, in Edward Said, Culture and Imperialism, 1993, p.280)

Watch and listen to Edward Said's lecture "the Myth of the Clash of Civilizations"
