About A Day in Solidarity with African People
A Day in Solidarity with African People is a national campaign culminating in events to benefit the worldwide struggle of African people for liberation, reparations and self-determination.
It is an expression of the stand that white people can take in genuine solidarity against the war against the African community right here in the U.S. It is not a charity, but is a fundraising and action campaign raising resources or “Reparations in Action,” for the programs and campaigns of the Uhuru Movement.
