Black August pt. 4: Black Liberation and internationalism

Thurs., Aug. 26 @ 6:30 pm
Indianapolis Liberation Center
55 S. State Ave., Unit 390

Organized by Muslim Youth Collective – Indianapolis and the Party for Socialism and Liberation

Last June, people in over 60 countries–from Australia and Belgium to South Africa, and Mexico–took to the streets in solidarity with the U.S. protests against white supremacy and police terror. This is yet another manifestation of the global nature of the internationalist character of the Black freedom struggle. As Assata Shakur wrote in her autobiography, “the victory of oppressed people anywhere in the world is a victory for Black people.”

In the last part of our month-long Black August series, we’ll focus on the history of the solidarity between the Black Struggle and its deep roots with all anti-imperialist struggles, including those in Palestine and Korea. We’ll examine what forms this solidarity takes, what politics and strategies call for such solidarity, and why it’s the key to the liberation of the entire planet.
