The Yard Sale for Reparations is raising funds towards the Black Power Blueprint’s upcoming Black Community Basketball Court program in North St. Louis. It’s not just building a basketball court; it’s rebuilding the community through self-determination and economic development in the hands of the African working class.

This is a neighborhood that is 95% African, the majority of whom live below the poverty line. African people in the St. Louis area are 3.23 times more likely than whites to live in poverty, the eighth-highest disparity out of 48 metro areas.

Through the Black Power Blueprint the black community is building self-empowerment in their own neighborhoods to stop the encroachment of big greedy developers and to build genuine grassroots community-based development in their own interests.

This is not charity. It’s a fight back against gentrification--colonialism by another name.

The fundraiser is organized by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, the organization of white activists formed by and working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party.
