What is the Uhuru Solidarity Movement? The Role of White People in the Struggle for Black Liberation
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is the organization of white people working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party, organizing in the white community to build as a mass movement for reparations to African people under the slogan, “white solidarity with black power.”
USM’s National Chair Jesse Nevel recently ran for Mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida along with Akile Anai, candidate for District 6 and member of the African People’s Socialist Party, on a progressive platform of uniting the city through a policy of reparations and economic development for the black community.
This campaign mobilized huge sectors of the white population to take a visible public stand of solidarity with the black community in their struggle for social justice and liberation, including a historic march through downtown St. petersburg that saw hundreds of white people marching behind the leadership of the black working class and chanting “unity through reparations.”
This profound showing of white solidarity with black power was a powerful counterpoint to the overt expressions of white nationalist violence as seen in Charlottesville and elsewhere in this period of escalating crisis for the imperialist social system.
USM and the call for “Unity through Reparations” represents the way forward for all white people who are looking to stand on the right side of history and join the rest of humanity in creating a future without oppression and exploitation.
