Mukasa Dada

Mukasa Dada, formerly known as Willie Ricks, is a civil rights activist. He won the support of thousands of working-class Africans when he chanted "Black Power" while Martin Luther King campaigned for what he termed an "integrated power."

Dada frequently visits Morehouse College, but has subsequently been barred from the campus. He staged a protest on January 26th, 2006 (during Archbishop Desmond Tutu's recognition ceremony) to protest a beating he suffered at the hands of the Morehouse Police Department. [1]
