Where the Money Goes

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement raises resources in the white community to support the black-led Uhuru Movement led by the African People’s Socialist Party whose programs span continents, uniting African people in the struggle for self-reliance, liberation, economic development and self-determination. Below is a sample of the programs you are supporting when you raise resources as an expression of reparations – not charity, but material solidarity with African self-determination:

  • I just have a plan that I would like you all to consider. I have a detailed spreadsheet, I also have had talks with other organizations. Please look at my plan, I’m open to constructive criticisms, I’m just trying to build a better place for my people to live.

  • If I donate, how much goes to administrative and other costs and how much is actually paid in reparations? Who are the reparations paid to?

    • Reparations are paid to Black Star Industries, the liberated African economy and marketplace that is building dual and contending power with the current economic system built on slavery, genocide and colonialism. The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is a volunteer organization and in 2016 we will raise $30,000 in reparations.

  • Peace love the movement! We are working on connecting all of the movements happening right now and wanted to know how we can connect and work? Peace and blessings. uhuru!!

  • How do I know this isn’t another ploy by whites to benefit off the pain of blacks. Why is it that there is always a white man or woman looking to come in and Save blacks(or act like it). You say your collecting reparations for black people, but how do I know that you’re not putting money in your pocket? Where is this money showing up in the black community? Are these reparations being payed to Americans that are black or Africans in Africa? How can I verify that? There are so many, so-called, nonprofit organization’s out there saying they’re feeding children in Africa. They collect billions of dollars, but only buy hundreds of dollars in food; to make it look like you’re helping black people. Those same organizations are lining their pockets with over 85 to 90% of the proceeds they receive. Those black suffering the worst, don’t even get a piece of that. Yah, forgive me if I’m wrong. I have a hard time believing these white people that are still giving me hell to this day. I’ve gone to college try to get a good job. Just to have my job taken by jealous white people, Who anger if you don’t have a subservient slave like disposition and don’t want to see you have anything or move up in the work place. Just three weeks ago, at my new current job. My white boss admitted after some poking and prodding, that he called the office trying to get me fired for my black hair; because he didn’t think it was professional. Wearing my black hair in the workplace should not even be an issue nowadays. I shouldn’t have to put chemicals in my hair, wear weaves, or wigs that resemble white or Caucasian hair in order to Appear presentable to white people at work. The only thing that they should be judging me on is my integrity, my work ethic, and my professionalism. This is a small example of the many things black people still endure by the hands of white people in the year 2017. It’s absolutely disgusting.

    • Uhuru, Naja! The Uhuru Solidarity Movement did not create itself; we work UNDER the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party~ a revolutionary African organization leading the Uhuru Movement.

      Chairman Omali Yeshitela is the founder and leader of the Uhuru Movement, and the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP).

      APSP was created in 1972. In 1976, Chairman Omali Yeshitela created the African People’s Solidarity Committee, for white people to join ~ not the Party, which is all-African (Black), but to join the Solidarity movement UNDER the leadership and direction of APSP, to go into the white community and win Reparations from other white people for Black Star Industries. The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) is the mass organization of the African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC), also under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP).

      Black Star Industries is the programs of the African People’s Socialist Party. ALL of the reparations raised by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, EVERY PENNY, goes to Black Star Industries; this is in our bylaws and constitution as directed by the African People’s Socialist Party~ our leadership. The programs of the African People’s Socialist Party benefit the African community, by building dueling, contending power and a liberated African economy.

      We white people, as you rightly point out, often are engaged in self-aggrandizing schmactivism; false “activism” which only benefits ourselves! Or makes us “feel better.” This is not true activism, and is not solidarity!

      Your descriptions of the prejudice and colonial conditions faced by Africans is well acknowledged by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement! We are taught by the Chairman, and the Chair of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, Penny Hess, about the history of our brutal legacy as white people, and the history of our attack on Africa, looting of African resources, kidnapping and enslavement of Africans, the stolen lives and labor due to our violent colonial legacy.

      The white people who join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement are white persons who unite in material solidarity with African liberation. We pay reparations monthly. And we go into our own white communities to teach other white people that colonialism still exists; Africans both in the U.S. and all over the world, including in the continent of Africa, still are oppressed under white power and colonialism, which must go!

      Naja, what happened to you at your workplace based on wearing your African hair is terrible; and one of the many ways in which we white people try to exert control over African women, men, and children, and their bodies. The white people in the Uhuru Solidarity Movement learn from our African leadership that this is abhorrent behavior of our white oppressor nation, and that this is just one way in which white power tries to oppress African people.

      The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) and ANWO took this very issue on, in schools where our young African comrades were being harassed and criminalized for expressing their African culture, and for wearing their natural hair in school. InPDUM was victorious and so began the #BlackGirlsWrapWednesday campaign, which is now nation wide, under the African National Women’s Organization (ANWO) and InPDUM!!

      We in the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, who work UNDER the leadership of APSP, join in material solidarity with African liberation and we say “Reparations Now!” There is more information under the “About” section on our homepage menu, including “Where the Money Goes,” and our “Principles of Unity.”

      Thank you so much, Naja, for taking the time to write these very important comments, much gratitude to you for raising these concerns so that we may address these in print for all to see!

      Uhuru means “freedom” in Swahili and the Chairman teaches us to greet one another in this way, so that the liberation of Africans and the unification of Africa, one nation, one people, is always on our mind! Uhuru! Reparations Now!

      • Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to respond. Thank you for directing me to your home page to seek the information on where the reparations are going.

        • Thank you for acknowledging what white people previously and currently are doing to Africans in Africa and America. Teaching other white people to pay monthly reparations in solidarity!

  • How do we as black people get our 40 acres and a mule? The Indians got their’s, whites have got more than their fair share from stealing from all other races. However, how do the black people get what is owed to us individually, because I want mine now….and I want it now because it is rightfully mine and my brother’s and sisters …. of the family of Black people?

    • Uhuru, Dianna! We in the Uhuru Solidarity Movement are white people who are organized under, and work under the leadership of, the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), to go into our white communities and raise reparations to Black Star Industries; the programs of the APSP. We unite that all of the stolen loot and resources hoarded in our white communities should go back to the African community, here in the U.S. and abroad. These stolen resources definitely belong to you and to all Black people, right now! We are holding our annual national convention in St. Petersburg, Florida this April 1st ~ 2nd. The USM National Convention is a national (and international) conference on Reparations! We are working under the Party’s leadership to unleash the stolen resources and put them back into the hands of the African working class! We have plans and will present workshops on how we as white people can struggle and organize in our own communities~ with other white people, white businesses, banks and corporations, to build a culture of white reparations to African people. Uhuru!

    • Uhuru! Our leadership is the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), which leads the Uhuru Movement. The APSP formed the Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM), the organization of white people in material solidarity with Black Power and African liberation, to go back into our white communities to unleash the stolen resources back into the hands of the African working class through reparations to Black Star Industries; the programs of the APSP. Black self determination and economic development in the Black community uplifts us all. For more info on the African People’s Socialist Party visit apspuhuru.org.
