Boston Day in Solidarity with African People: Unity Through Reparations
Tues. Oct 17th, 7pm-9:30pm
@ First Baptist Church in JP, 633 Centre St, Jamaica Plain
free, wheelchair accessible
Come out to hear dynamicpresentations by electoral candidates Akilé Anai
and Jesse Nevel, community activists who challenged the status quo of
St. Petersburg, Florida over the summer with bold revolutionary
campaigns for people’s power. Anai ran for St. Petersburg’s District 6
City Council seat and Nevel, for Mayor. Their campaigns, and the
people’s movement they represent, exposed the brutal conditions of life
imposed on African people, sparking critical conversations in St.
Petersburg about reparations, gentrification and black community control
of the police. Anai and Nevel will join keynote speaker Omali Yeshitela,
Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party, and Penny Hess,
Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee.
Hosted by Uhuru Solidarity Movement Boston.
