We invite everyone to come to the “Days in Solidarity with African People: Unity Through Reparations” speaking tour events to hear the leadership of the African revolution, such as Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), Yejide Orunmila, President of the African National Women’s Organization (ANWO), and Akilé Anai, Chair of the Three Drowned Black Girls (3DBG) Committee.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
YEJIDE ORUNMILA is the President of the African National Women’s Organization (ANWO), an international membership-based organization founded in March 2015 to address the specific oppression that African women face as a result of colonial oppression. A proficient writer, Yejide has written popular articles such as “End the oppression of African women: Breaking through feminism,” and “No such thing as women in general: white women and their support of imperialism.”
PENNY HESS is the Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, an organization of white people created by the African People’s Socialist Party to build unwavering white solidarity with African Liberation. She wrote “Overturning the Culture of Violence” which examines the violent history of how white people built a world socio-economic system based on the enslavement of African people and the genocide of indigenous people and theft of their land. She will be presenting on white people’s role in the African Liberation movement.
AKILÉ ANAI formerly Eritha “Akilé Cainion) is candidate for District 6 City Council in St Petersburg, FL, running a joint campaign with Jesse Nevel for mayor, both on platforms of reparations and economic development to the Black Community. Akilé is a 20 year old black community organizer and member of the African People’s Socialist Party, and Chair of the Justice for the 3 Drowned Black Girls campaign.
JESSE NEVEL is candidate for Mayor of St Petersburg and national Chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement. At 27 years old he has been involved in the Uhuru Movement for almost a decade leading the work of the solidarity movement and organizing white people to pay reparations to African people.
The Days in Solidarity with African People (DSAP) is the Uhuru Solidarity Movement’s most important event of the year.
The DSAP campaign is based on the principle that solidarity from the white community with the struggle of oppressed peoples must translate into dollars and cents. We must put our money where our mouths are.
All of the resources benefit the economic and social programs of the African People’s Socialist Party, and Black Star Industries, uniting Africans worldwide in the struggle for their freedom, justice and power.
Unity Through Reparations!
