USM STL No Pride in Genocide: White LGBT Solidarity with Black Power

June 20, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement St. Louis’ workshop for Pride Month:
“No Pride in Genocide: White LGBT Solidarity with Black Power.”

Our keynote speaker will be Kalambayi Andenet, lifelong St. Louis resident & the president of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, the mass organization of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP). President Kalambayi is a fierce freedom fighter who struggles daily for the liberation of all African people. The African People’s Socialist Party has provided leadership and put forward many ways in which African Women, and Gender and Sexuality Nonconforming African people, must be leaders in the struggle for Black Power.

This event will also feature a presentation by Kitty Reilly, a member of the African People’s Solidarity Committee & the Director of the Office of Reparations and Economic Development, under the leadership of Deputy Chair Ona Zene Yeshitela. Since 1979 she has participated in all the campaigns led by the African People’s Socialist Party, winning white people to take a stand in solidarity with black self-determination.

The event will kick off with a workshop by KC Mackey, Chair of the St. Louis chapter of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM). KC sets the way forward for other white people of the LGBT community to take a principled stance of reparations to African people. USM is the mass organization of white people under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party, and has the goal of winning thousands of white LGBT people to go beyond the opportunist politics of the Pride march, and stand for white solidarity with black power.

If you are opposed to all forms of oppression;
if you are outraged at the racism in the LGBT community;
if you want to see a new world in which all people can live freely, no one at anyone else’s expense;
of if you just want to learn more…
this workshop is for you!

Light refreshments provided.
All funds raised will go towards the Black Power Blueprint in St. Louis.
