This Friday, December 8th at NOON EST, will be the launch of the $25,000 fundraiser for the Black Power Blueprint Campaign!!!
4 pm EST: STL APSP member Ticharwa Masimba, coordinator of the Black Power Blueprint work days
The Black Power Blueprint is a black-led self-determination project in St. Louis, MO. A new beginning, reclaiming our African community; investing in our African future.
The BPB project, led by Black Star Industries, LLC (BSI) and the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF), is a strike back against the ravaging gentrification that is turning historic black communities white.
With your help to bring to life the plan for black community owned and operated institutions such as a new Uhuru House Community Center at 4101 W. Florissant Ave, the Uhuru Jiko Commercial Kitchen, Bakery and Café at 3723 Goodfellow, and garden/outdoor event space at 4031/4035 W. Florissant Ave, we are kickstarting a new future for the African community in St. Louis, MO.
The African community here, like others around the country, faces poverty, joblessness, poor schools and substandard housing.
In St. Louis the police violence against our community is so severe that in 2014 it brought world attention to the police murder of Mike Brown.
These are the conditions of the poor and working class African community in a country built on slavery and genocide.
These projects will impact on the city through social and economic rebirth. Our institutions will create jobs and commerce. They will attract black culture and arts developed through self-determination projects by an African-led organization dedicated to the leadership and empowerment of the black working class. Find out more how you can contribute to and be apart of this historic project.
Every Friday, until February 23rd, we’ll go live from the Black Power Blueprint Facebook page throughout the day with guest speakers from St. Louis, St. Pete and other places.
For our launch this Friday we have a generous matching funds donation from Ruby Gittelsohn of APSC for $1000!! Our total fundraising goal for the day is $3000 and we’re asking if people can give $100 on this day to meet our ultimate goal of $25,000 by the end of February. But of course donations of any amount are welcome.
Here’s the link to the fundraiser page:
Please encourage your friends, family and coworkers to donate! And make sure to share the link to the live stream from the Black Power Blueprint page on your own page throughout the day.
