This is where music & dance meets political consciousness-raising and
material solidarity with Black Power. After we pay our Black performers,
all funds raised go to the Uhuru Movement, led by the African People’s
Socialist Party (APSP). This fundraiser is part of the Reparations
Challenge (http://www.uhurusolidarity.org/about/dsap2014/repchall/ ), a
call put forth by the APSP to white people to take a principled stance
of solidarity with African people struggling for self-determination. All
are welcome –  and we welcome anyone to contribute to the revolutionary
work of the APSP – though we are specifically collecting reparations
from white people, because white people benefit from this social system
that is systematically murdering Black and Brown people inside and
outside of United States borders. We hope you enjoy the music and and
come with an open heart and open mind.

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM,
https://www.facebook.com/uhurusolidarity/ ) is an organization of white
people who work under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist
Party, and is the only one of it's kind. Our historic work is to go back
into the white community to win white solidarity with Black Power and
Reparations to African people. We organize in our communities to win
other white people, like ourselves, to join with the future of humanity.
We stand in unconditional Solidarity with the struggle of African people
for self-determination, economic development and social justice.

In the Uhuru movement, we believe that Black lives won’t matter until
there is Black power – when Black people have control over their own
lives & power to defend themselves, and are not faced with terrible
housing conditions, lack of access to healthcare and education, and
police harassment and brutality on a daily basis. As Anthony
Amaru-Khalil Mustacich, president of USM’s Seattle chapter said, “White
people can say Black Lives Matter until they’re blue in the face-- but
what does that mean when 98% of the land in this country is owned by
white people, 90% of all businesses are owned by white people, when the
State openly serves the interests of white power, and over 90% of the
capital assets of this nation are owned by white people? If you think
that Black lives matter then support self-determination for Black
people. Otherwise all you’re saying is that Black lives only matter as
long as white people are still in control and own everything.
#BlackPowerMatters.” We believe Black power will liberate everyone.
