FILM SCREENING & DISCUSSION:
"Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes From Anti-Imperialist Self-Defense"
This 2014 documentary is written and directed by Göran Hugo Olsson and
narrated by Lauryn Hill. It takes the work of anti-imperialist
revolutionary philosopher and psychiatrist, Frantz Fanon, and brings it
to the screen. The film explores the use of anti-colonial violence as a
path to liberation. Fanon's book "Wretched of the Earth" has had a
historic impact on anti-colonial struggle around the world. Notable
students of his work are Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Steve Biko, and many more.
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is an international anti-colonial
organization of white people that was created by and is accountable to
the African People's Socialist Party. We organize in the white community
for reparations to African people. www.uhurusolidarity.org
This event is a fundraiser for our national annual convention which will
take place in St Petersburg, FL, April 1-2 2017!
