The Reparations Tour: White Solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint is part of a U.S. wide tour building support for the Black Power Blueprint Project, a program for economic and political power in the hands of the African working class of St. Louis in the wake of the mass resistance following the police murder of Mike Brown in 2014.
The Black Power Blueprint is a community project that is purchasing and revitalizing buildings in the heart of the impoverished O'Fallon neighborhood, creating programs for community economic development such as the Uhuru House community center and the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace and community garden. The project also includes collective renovation of a building to be used as a community kitchen, bakery and African Independence Workforce program for black workers who are coming out of the U.S. colonial prison system.
This tour offers white people an opportunity to support the projects through reparations to the black community and to stand in solidarity with the movement for self-determination and power in the hands of the black working class.
