Mass Against Against Police Brutality presents
*Black Liberation and the Cuban Revolution*

The Cuban Revolution has always been a staunch supporter of Black 
liberation in the US. Through determined resistance this small island 
has stood up to the dictates of US imperialism for over a half century. 
They have provided safe harbor and political asylum for many Black 
militant leaders such as Assata Shakur, an icon often quoted in chants 
at protests against police brutality and racism across the country 
today. Cuba has also helped many national liberation struggles 
throughout Africa. The struggle against institutionalized racism was one 
of the pillars of the Cuba Revolution. Come to an important exchange 
about the current and historical battle against racist oppression and 
the experiences in Cuba and the US and how these struggles are 
interrelated. Hear a panel of participants in both struggles.
