USM Webinar: White Feminism vs. African Internationalism

Join us for this powerful and mobilizing Webinar where we will discuss White Feminism vs. African Internationalism with featured speakers Akilé Anai of the African People’s Socialist Party, and KC Mackey of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement.

We will discuss white solidarity with Black Power, the political theory of the African working class: African Internationalism, and how white feminism has historically placed the demands of white women above the needs of Africans and other colonized people.

Join us to learn more about African Internationalism, how this revolutionary theory transcends feminism, and why white people should join in material solidarity with African liberation and Black power. This event will belivestreamed from facebook.com/uhurusolidarity/ on Friday, March 30th from 7 to 9 pm EST.

This Webinar is co-hosted by and will raise resources for the Black Power Blueprint, a black-led self determination project in St. Louis, MO, organized by Black Star Industries and the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), to build economic development in the Black community, and Black self-determination.

Fred Hampton was the Chair of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party who was brutally assassinated by the FBI and Chicago police as part of their vicious COINTELPRO program, created to destroy the rising Black Revolution of the 60s. White people who supported the Panthers were nowhere to be found as Panther leaders were murdered and imprisoned. Today, COINTELPRO is back with the latest FBI designation of “black identity extremists, and this time, white people will not be complicit. We will defend the Black Revolution and organize in solidarity with African people’s right to resist and be liberated.

This is a fundraiser for The Reparations Tour; White Solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint
