Harvard Owes Reparations Now!

March 3, 2017 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

HARVARD OWES REPARATIONS NOW!
An open meeting –following Harvard’s conference on Universities & Slavery– on how white people can join the struggle for reparations to African people. Hosted by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement.

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is offering this space to continue the conversation started by Harvard in their March 3rd conference on Universities and Slavery, where they refer to their “historical connection to slavery.” As stated in the Harvard Crimson, “the past never dies or disappears. It continues to shape us in ways we should not try to erase or ignore.” (1)
USM will discuss the ways that white people can actively support the work for reparations to the black community. When white people support African-led economic initiatives by paying reparations, African people can begin to repair the damage caused by slavery and colonialism.
Black Star Industries, the self-reliant African economy, organized by the African People’s Socialist Party, is building itself and empowerment programs that benefit the African community with the returned resources through reparations: http://apspuhuru.org/about/black-star-industries/

Come learn about the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and what you can do to not only recognize the past, but overturn the relationship between universities and slavery.
