Join the Boston chapter of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement for a screening
& discussion of the documentary "The Murder of Fred Hampton"

Fred Hampton was the Chair of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther
Party who was brutally assassinated by the FBI and Chicago police as
part of their vicious COINTELPRO program, created to destroy the rising
Black Revolution of the 60s. White people who supported the Panthers
were nowhere to be found as Panther leaders were murdered and imprisoned.

Today, COINTELPRO is back with the latest FBI designation of "Black
Identity Extremists”,  which is targeting African people as terrorists
if they identify as black, Muslim, Moorish, African etc and is the
State’s newest war of colonial violence against African people’s right
to self-determination and liberation. The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is
engaged in a campaign right now, #NoToFBI where this time in 2018, white
people will not be complicit! We will defend the Black Revolution and
organize in solidarity with African people's right to resist and
liberate themselves. Join us for an engaging discussion after the film
where we will discuss this campaign, how you can get involved, and learn
why white people MUST take a stand against the US government’s war
against the black community!

$10 at the door includes vegan snacks and is a fundraiser towards the
Black Power Blueprint project. On March 28th, USM Boston will be hosting
The Reparations Tour: White Solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint,
where speakers engaged in the project will present on the work being
done to build black economic development in St. Louis. (@ the Warehouse
XI, 11 Sanbourn Court in Somerville MA, 7pm.)

We will also have T-shirts, patches, and art for sale from the Art For
Reparations project, as well as free literature to take home to learn
more about the movement for white reparations to African people.
