GET OUT: film night, discussion and dinner fundraiser
Mon. Aug 21st, 7-9pm
@ Parts and Crafts, 577 Somerville Ave in Somerville
Wheelchair accessible venue
$15 includes dinner (free for colonized/ non-white folks)

Join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement Boston for a screening of the
incredible film GET OUT. We will serve vegan dinner and have a
discussion afterwards about the film with an African Internationalist

This event is a fundraiser for the "Days in Solidarity with African
People" national speaking tour. Traveling to 8 cities, we are hosting
the Boston event on Oct 17th, at the First Baptist Church in JP. Our
featured speaker will be Chairman Omali Yeshitela, an internationally
respected black power freedom fighter, leader and founder of the Uhuru
Movement and African People's Socialist Party (APSP). He will be
presenting on how white people can stand in solidarity with the black
liberation movement by joining the anti-colonial struggle being lead by
working-class African(black) people around the world for
self-determination. USM works under the leadership of the APSP for
reparations to African people, fundraising to build the economic
development institutions that benefit black people everywhere.

The tour is joining with the Unity Through Reparations campaign being
lead in St Petersburg, FL right now, and will include 3 other amazing
speakers: Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity
Committee; Eritha Akile Cainion, candidate for District 6 City Council
in St Pete and Chair of the Justice for the Three Drowned Black Girls -
3DBG Campaign; and Jesse Nevel for Mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida,
candidate for Mayor in St Pete and national Chair of the Uhuru
Solidarity Movement.

To bring these 4 amazing community organizers to Boston, we need to
fundraise over $3000 to pay for things like flights, hotels, venue costs
and honorariums for their time & effort. Please come out to our
fundraiser Aug 21st! If you can't attend but would like to donate, you

Hosted by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people
