A forum to address the role of white people in ending the rampant police violence targeting black people in the United States.

Part of a nationwide campaign, the event will build support for the black-led Uhuru Movement’s quest for justice for the murder of three African teenaged women by Florida sheriff’s deputies this year. Speakers include Kunde Mwamvita, mother of Dominique Battle, one of the three murdered teenagers and a courageous fighter for the black community and Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party and founder of the worldwide Uhuru (‘freedom’) Movement for the past forty years.

A local activist group advocating reparations to the black community will host a “A Day in Solidarity with African People” event on October 13th to address the role of white people in ending the rampant police violence targeting black people in the United States.

The Day in Solidarity is part of a nationwide campaign sponsored by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement.

The event will build national support for the black-led Uhuru Movement’s quest for justice for the murder of three African teenaged women by Florida sheriff’s deputies earlier this year.

On March 31st, 2016 in St. Petersburg, Florida, sheriff deputies chased Dominique Battle, Ashanuti Butler and La’Niyah Miller into a cemetery and rammed their car into a pond where they drowned. Dash cam video showed several police officers ignoring the screams of three drowning black girls.

Kunde Mwamvita, the mother of Dominique and a courageous fighter for the black community, will be traveling from Florida to speak at the event.
“What’s done in the dark will come to the light,” says Mwamvita, referring to the sheriff’s and media cover-up of the murder of daughter. “The whole world is watching now and we’re coming.”

Omali Yeshitela will deliver the keynote address. Yeshitela is the Chair of the African People’s Socialist Party who is famous for founding and leading the worldwide Uhuru (‘freedom’) Movement for the past forty years.

Yeshitela has spoken throughout the world to bring together African people into a global movement for black liberation and self-determination.

Also speaking will be Penny Hess, Chair of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, the organization of white people working under the Uhuru Movement’s leadership to build “white solidarity with Black Power” since its founding in 1976. Hess will speak to the audience on the role and responsibility of white people in the black freedom struggle.

The event will feature culture, light refreshments, and a question-and-answer session.
