Black August Commemorative Educational Call: Political Prisoners, Prisoners of War in the United States and the legacy of repression and resistance

Black August

is a month of great commemorative significance for peoples’ of African descent throughout the African Diaspora, but particularly those in the U.S. where the commemorative tradition originated. Black August, as noted by Mumia Abu-Jamal, “is a month of divine meaning, of repression and radical resistance, of injustice and divine justice; of repression and righteous rebellion; of individual and collective efforts to free the slaves and break the chains that bind us” (http://sfbayview.com/2009/black-august/).
