Uhuru Solidarity Movement organizers building the Days in Solidarity with African People campaign have been hitting the streets from St. Petersburg, Florida to Oakland, California to raise resources and build solidarity with African self determination and liberation.
The campaign for Days in Solidarity with African People nationwide is mobilizing North Americans to take the pledge of solidarity with African people as a concrete expression of reparations to African people for centuries of ongoing oppression, from the days of chattel slavery to the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
The DSAP campaign culminates in major events featuring keynote speaker Chairman Omali Yeshitela, the founder and leader of the Uhuru Movement whose electrifying message has galvanized African people on multiple continents to unite in the struggle for a free Africa and African people. Penny Hess, the Chair of the African People’s Solidarity Commitee and author of Overturning the Culture of Violence, will also be speaking, breaking down the meaning of why the Uhuru Movement says that the problem faced by African people is colonialism, not racism, and how this informs the role of white people in the struggle for African liberation.
