BLACK IS BACK COALITION TO CONDUCT ELECTORAL CANDIDATE SCHOOL FOR BLACK ACTIVISTS

On April 8th and 9th, the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations will conduct an electoral campaign school for African activists who want to open up a new front for the struggle for self-determination in the U.S. After years of organizing mass actions, conventions and conferences to promote self-determination while fighting Democrats and Republicans and their black sycophants in our own communities, the Coalition has called on black militants to invade the system white rulers have created to exercise white political power. The Coalition is not calling on black people to abandon all other forms of struggle or to believe that elections are the only legitimate means of achieving and exercising power. We know different. We are aware of the history of betrayal of our people’s desire for freedom by both Democrats and Republicans. Click here to learn more.
