More Info

This is what reparations looks like

The March for Reparations to African People is a major fundraising campaign to raise $20,000 (at least!) in material solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint - a St. Louis-based program that functions as a blueprint for black-led self-determination and empowerment in cities across the U.S. and world.

THIS is what reparations looks like! Reparations for the Black Power Blueprint. 

The Black Power Blueprint is a black-led, anti-colonial, anti-gentrification program. It is led by the African working class, building their own political and economic power over their communities and resources.  The Black Power Blueprint is acquiring abandoned, dilapidated buildings, and initiating a rapid process of restoration or demolition to create black community-led, self-reliance programs that uplift the residents and engage them socially, politically and economically in the future of their community.

For white people, the stand of material solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint is a stance of reparations, acknowledging that the social wealth in the white community has come at the expense of colonialism, enslavement and oppression of African people and theft of their resources. 

The stand of reparations for the Black Power Blueprint is a stand against police violence, mass incarceration, genocide, colonial poverty and all other forms of injustice and oppression. It is a stand for justice and reparations for African people, the only way that genuine peace for all humanity will be possible.

Update #3

On this weekend, forty-four years ago, in 1976, the African People's Socialist Party and Chairman Omali Yeshitela founded the African People's Solidarity Committee, the cadre organization of white people in solidarity with the African Revolution, working under the leadership of the Party to build the movement for reparations to African people. We salute Chairman Omali Yeshitela for his profound leadership of the worldwide movement for African independence and for creating the way for white people to rectify our relationship to African people and all of humanity.

Penny Hess was there at the founding conference in 1976. For the past forty-four years, APSC Chairwoman Penny has embodied the highest stand of principled white solidarity with African liberation. We salute Chairwoman Penny Hess for her tenacious, steadfast and determined cadre stance for nearly half a century--and continuing to fight for reparations, up to this very day!

In the words of APSC Chairwoman Penny Hess:

"By joining the African People's Solidarity Committee, we can build a citizens' movement for reparations to African people. We can do everything in our power to see that the interests of oppressed peoples are realized. We can participate in ending the gap between the haves and the have-nots. We can help end a system based on enslaved and masters, oppressed and oppressors. We can support the life-giving movements of oppressed peoples and end the white power system. 'UHURU' can be our freedom as well."
From the book 'Overturning the Culture of Violence'

Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee (APSC), is hosting a fundraiser for the "March for Reparations to African People" pledge drive for the Black Power Blueprint program. In honor of APSC's 44th anniversary, let's contribute to Chairwoman Penny's goal to raise $300 in material solidarity with African self-determination! https://fundly.com/penny-hess-march-for-reparations

Update #2

With your participation, we've raised 25% of the $20,000 goal to the Black Power Blueprint!

Your contributions are going directly to the work of renovating the 4-plex apartment building located just blocks from the Uhuru House. This building is earmarked for the African Independence Workforce Program: housing and job training for African people coming out of the colonial prison system.

On September 8, the demo crew from Paradigm Builders began cleaning out debris, removing walls and old light and bathroom fixtures from the 4-plex apartment building. Eric LaGrone has installed the electricity and the Paradigm work crew finished tuck pointing the side of the building. Here you can see the work crew renovating the ceiling of the apartments.

Renovations are set to be completed by November of this year! Contribute to this positive program through the March for Reparations to African People, and set up your own fundraising goal at fundly.com/march-for-reparations!
