“...I was born a Black woman
I become a Palestinian
against the relentless laughter of evil
there is less and less living room
and where are my loved ones?
It is time to make our way home.”
— JUNE JORDAN, MOVING TOWARDS HOME (1982)
We are witnessing an ongoing genocide powered by colonialism, racism, and capitalism. As Black people, we deserve spaces to learn, unlearn, investigate, and re-imagine history, solidarity, and the current landscape of our world. There is a long history of connection, collaboration and solidarity between Black Liberation Movements, Pan-Africanism and the Palestinian Liberation Movement. Our collective understanding of this history can be a tool for continued solidarity in the face of our current reality.
Join Holden Cession and Blu Lewis for a teach-in for folks wanting to learn more about the history of the Palestine Movement and the intersections with Black Liberation and & Pan-Africanism.
