Join us this Sunday, August 28th, at 1:00 PM EST/ 10:00 AM Pacific time, on Uhuru Radio! On this episode of Reparations in Action Weekly Radio Show, Host Jamie Simpson will interview APSC Chair Penny Hess about the struggle over the St. Pete City Hall mural, which was torn down in 1966 by Omali Yeshitela (known then as Joseph Waller) African People’s Socialist Party Chairman. The tearing down of the racist mural was a momentous act in the history of the Black Power Movement, and a touchstone for Africans controlling the narrative around the struggle for their own liberation.
APSC Chair Penny Hess will discuss the upcoming event “An Evening With Chairman Omali Yeshitela,” which is to be held on September 13th at the Uhuru House in St. Pete, to honor Chairman Omali Yeshitela for the 50th anniversary of courageously taking down the racist mural from St. Petersburg City Hall in 1966.
During the second half of our broadcast, we will interview Bruce Wright, a local (St. Pete, Florida) activist and friend of the Uhuru Movement, who recently lost a first amendment case in federal court. Imperialist powers attempted to silence Wright for bringing attention to the colonial violence faced by Africans in St. Pete at the hands of the police.
