Only Avenue Is Revolution Brown Asserts NEW YORK (AP) - H. Rap Brown told a small meeting of African students Thursday that the United States "has never ad* dressed itself to our grievances," and outlined why his Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee reorganized last May to fight "racism and economic exploitation." When there is no avenue open for justice, Brown said, "Then the avenue must be revolutionary. We must fight. We can no longer fear the machine America has because it has been used to oppress black people." Brown, chairman of SNCC, and James Forman, international director, spoke before two dozen African students attending a conference of the Zimbabwe African People 's Union, the largest black party in Rhodesia. The conference at Columbia University's Earl Hall was organized by the union 's student branch in the United States. Zimbabwe is the name of an old African kingdom that once included what is now Rhodesia and both the students and their puest speakers used it instead of the name Rhodesia.
