"Message From a Black Man" (1969) is a musical composition by The Temptations released on their 1969 album Puzzle People, later covered by The Whatnauts, The Heptones and Derrick Harriott.

It is a Black Power song with the militant refrain: "no matter how hard you try/you can't stop me now."

The lyrics to the song echoed the growing black consciousness in American soul music of that time. The Black power song featured the militant refrain: "no matter how hard you try/you can't stop me now."
