The Gainesville branch of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement hosted the “Days in Solidarity with African People” speaking tour this past Sunday at the Millhopper Library in Gainesville, Florida. Featured speakers included Jesse Nevel, Chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM), Chairwoman Penny Hess of the African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC), and Akilé Anai, Chair of the Justice for the Three Drowned Black Girls Committee (3DBG), and the Communities United for Reparations and Economic Development (CURED).
The Days in Solidarity with African People (DSAP) campaign 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.
The DSAP 2017 speaking tour has also visited Oakland CA, St. Petersburg FL, Boston MA, and Brooklyn NY this fall. The sixth and final destination of the speaking tour will be Huntsville, Alabama on November 19th.
