On September 13, 2022, Chairman Omali Yeshitela returns to Oaklands Uhuru House, headquarters of the African Peoples Socialist Party in the 1980s from where he rebuilt the Black Power Movement out of the ashes of COINTELPRO. Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton made his last public appearances at the Uhuru House shortly before his assassination in 1989.
Hell be back in Oakland to speak at the September 13th Day of Reparations to African People - Oakland, an annual Uhuru Solidarity Movement event to raise reparations from the white community for Uhuru Movement programs around the U.S. and the world.
At 5am CDT on Friday, July 29, 2022, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), aided by local police, raided the offices and homes of members of the Uhuru Movement in St. Petersburg, Florida and St. Louis, Missouri, including Chairman Omali Yeshitelas home.
According to Yeshitela, This is an attempt by the U.S. government to attack, discredit and isolate the African Revolution at a time when it is growing in strength and winning on so many fronts. One of the aims of this attack is to cut off the resources, and that is why reparations is more important than ever.
Another speaker at the event will be Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African Peoples Solidarity Committee and author of Overturning the Culture of Violence, who states, White people have a responsibility to prevent the state from moving to attack the African People's Socialist Party in the same way that they have attacked African leaders in the past such as Malcolm X, Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey and others.
Yeshitela is the creator of the theory of African Internationalism and author of several books including Vanguard and One Africa! One Nation!. He has provided over 50 years of bold and relentless leadership to the struggle for the self-determination of the African community.
