DRep 2018

Our incredible 2018 Days of Reparations to African People Tour began in the Black Power Blueprint-built Uhuru House in St. Louis, Missouri, on October 17, 2018 and and concluded on November 14, 2018 in Seattle, Washington.

African People’s Socialist Party and worldwide Uhuru Movement leader Chairman Omali Yeshitela and other African People’s Socialist Party leaders, like African National Women’s Organization President Yejide Orunmila, APSP Department of Agit-Prop Director Akilé Anai and APSP Southeast Regional Representative Kobina Botushango, embarked on an international speaking tour, with events held all over the continental US, and in Perth Australia, supported by African People’s Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny and Uhuru Solidarity Movement Chair Jesse Nevel.

This historic tour won scores of members and thousands in reparations, resources returned from the white community to the African revolution, which will go to build the victorious African working class-led programs for economic development and self determination in St. Louis, Missouri as part of the African People’s Education and Defense Fund’s (APEDF) (501c3) incredible Black Power Blueprint campaign.

Chairman Omali Yeshitela speaks on “The Slave Ship” painting at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts

Chairman Omali Yeshitela speaks on "The Slave Ship" painting at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, made by J. M. W. Turner in 1840. Originally titled, "Slavers Throwing overboard the Dead and Dying—Typhoon coming on", this painting depicts enslaved African people being thrown overboard a ship by white European slave-masters as a means to collect insurance on their "damaged goods". Europe's assault on Africa turned African people into capitalist commodities which white people have profited from for centuries– a parasitic relationship which still exists to this day. It is one of many reasons why white people owe reparations to African people.Also speaking is Chairwoman Penny Hess of the African People's Solidarity Committee. APSC is an organization of white people which works under the leadership of the APSP for reparations to African people.This talk is hosted by the Boston chapter of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement as a special event before the November 8th stop on speaking tour Boston – A Day of Reparations to African People featuring Chairman Omali Yeshitela, Chairwoman Penny Hess, and Chair Jesse Nevel of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement. 7-9pm at the First Church in Jamaica Plain, 6 Eliot St. More info & registration at BostonDayOfReparations2018.eventbrite.com
