Ashanti Alston, Black Panther, ex-political prisoner, and long-time activist in Black liberation movements, will report on recent developments in the struggle for self determination and community autonomy currently under way in both the African American and Latino communities. Drawing from his own history in the black liberation movement in the United States, Alston will examine the intersections and solidarity between these communities as well as investigate the critical role of popular education strategies for the Black Panthers and more recently the Zapatista communities of Chiapas, Mexico.

This talk will focus on the impact of the Zapatista movement in Mexico on People—of color self-determination movements in the U.S. Why does their small "r" indigenous revolution challenge us so deeply, and give us reason to believe that our freedom dreams and sense of dignity are the guides to changing the world?
