Indy hosts national launch of Shaka Shakur’s timely new book

Wednesday, June 19
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Dream Palace Books & Coffee
111 E 16th St., Suite 101

While Juneteenth is a celebration of a major milestone in the Black/New Afrikan liberation movement, because that movement is far from over, it is also a day to continue the struggle for the liberation of New Afrikan people in the U.S and oppressed and colonized people everywhere. That’s why Free Shaka Shakur, the Shaka Shakur Freedom Campaign, and the Indianapolis Liberation Center are excited to partner with Dream Palace Books & Coffee for “The New Afrikan Independence Movement and Solidarity With All Struggles for National Liberation,” the nationwide launch of Shaka Shakur’s latest booklet!

Hear from Shaka himself about his new work, From the Republic of New Afrika to Palestine: National liberation In context, and join in discussion with organizers and activists in Indianapolis and nationwide as we deepen our resolve to fight for the liberation of humanity.

Shakur’s latest writings come shortly after the release of The Right to Be Free, another booklet of his works. Like that book, From the Republic of New Afrika to Palestine reaffirms and amplifies the theory and practice of the New Afrikan Independence Movement. What is distinct about his latest work is how it extends that theory and practice from New Afrika to Palestine and, in doing so, connects a range of national liberation struggles together in accessible ways that can inform our tactics and strategies. Shakur “bridges any historical gaps in the struggle of New Afrikans and builds that bridge beyond the prison house of nations called the united states.”

Along with a preface by Haki Kweli Shakur and an introductory chapter on the foundations of the New Afrikan Independence Movement, the book’s primary three essays can serve to fortify our struggles and increase our numbers, providing the theoretical clarity for sharpening the unexpected decisions we make in the struggles of our day.

Books are available to order from Shaka Shakur’s store here! If you are interested in hosting a satellite book launch in your area, contact us!
