Uhuru comrades!

On Tuesday, September 6th, 7-9pm we will be having an organizing meeting
in Cambridgeport to plan for the upcoming Days in Solidarity with
African People (DSAP) event that Uhuru Solidarity Movement Boston will
host in late October. USM is an organization of white people under the
leadership of the African People's Socialist Party (APSP), the Black
working class of the world. The APSP has defined this campaign as our
most important work of the year to make a speaking event happen in every
city where USM members live, to raise the political consciousness of
revolutionary Black power and to seek reparations from white people for
the enslavement and genocide of African people which this nation was
built on and still continues today.

DSAP is a speaking tour featuring Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the
African People's Socialist Party; Penny Hess, chairwoman of the African
People's Solidarity Committee; and Kunde Ngudi Mwamvita, mother of
Dominique Battle, one of the 3 Black girls who were drowned this year by
the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department in FL. For more information on
the campaign for justice for the 3 drowned Black girls, visit:

This powerful speaking event will forever change the political
atmosphere of Boston around the issue of #Black Power Matters. And we
need your help to bring them here! We need to raise around $5,000 to
bring these 3 incredible speakers plus their bodyguard to Boston
(flights, hotel, venue rental, etc.)

We are calling on all supporters of African/Black liberation to attend
this meeting. By the end of the night, we hope to establish roles for
organizing (such as coordinators for logistics, media, outreach, funding
etc.) There's nothing more satisfying than taking action to organize in
your own community! Not one more murder of Black/African life!
