Concerning Violence: Benefit For The Black Power Blueprint
April 27, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
“Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes From Anti-Imperialist Self-Defense” is a 2014 documentary written and directed by Göran Hugo Olsson and narrated by Lauryn Hill. It takes the work of anti-imperialist revolutionary philosopher and psychiatrist, Frantz Fanon, and brings it to the screen. The film explores the use of anti-colonial violence as a path to liberation. Fanon’s book “Wretched of the Earth” has had a historic impact on anti-colonial struggle around the world. Notable students of his work are Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Steve Biko, and many more.
Join Uhuru Solidarity Movement STL for a collective viewing followed by a group discussion. The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is an international anti-colonial organization of white people that was created by and is accountable to the African People’s Socialist Party. We organize in the white community for reparations to African people.
A vegan-friendly dinner of chili and cornbread, which is free and open to the public, will be served at 6:30, and the movie will begin at 7.
This event is a fundraiser for reparations to the Black Power Blueprint, a Black-led self-determination project in St. Louis which includes the Uhuru House community center, the Uhuru Jiko commercial kitchen, and the One Africa One Nation outdoor marketplace and garden.
