As organized resistance of African and other oppressed peoples grows inside this country and around the world against U.S. colonial wars, police violence, massive foreclosures, poverty and imprisonment and deepens the crisis of our current economic and social system, what is the role and responsibility of honest, progressive white people?
Reports from the Jan 9-11th International Conference on White Solidarity with Black Power, building a principled relationship to African and oppressed peoples from white and other allies.
We will watch excerpts of the keynote presentations by African Socialist International Chairman Omali Yeshitela, Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess and leaders Diop Olugbala of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement.
Get involved in our campaigns for Reparations in Action to challenge the ongoing oppression of the African nation by raising up African people's right to resistance and supporting that organized resistance - from Oakland to Philly and everywhere in between.
