The Uhuru Solidarity Movement sponsors the first of two studies on the historical legacy of the current police and prison systems n slavery, genocide and the convict leasing system that built the wealth of the white world.

We will read excerpts from Penny Hess' Overturning the Culture of Violence, the works of Omali Yeshitela and Douglas A. Blackmon's Slavery By Another Name.

Come and study and join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and stand with the growing resistance of African people building sustainability and justice.
