Welcome to The Movement for Reparations and Black Self-Determination

We look forward to your contributions and active participation in the Campaign for Reparations and Black Self-Determination. This process was initiated as the result of the 2017 New Afrikan/Black Unity and Solidarity Conference (NABUS), held in Pittsburgh, Pa. from August 19-20th.

NABUS is the annual conference held during the Marcus Garvey birthday weekend. It is organized and facilitated by the New Afrikan Independence Party (NAIP), an independent Black political party (www.newafrikan.org)

We welcome and encourage the active participation of all Black people throughout the Afrikan diaspora, but especially those within the United States. We welcome all who have been, and continue to work as advocates, educators, activists and organizers around reparations and Black self-determination. However, we think it is crucially important to develop and expand this movement among and between those who are in most critical need of its benefit…the Black working-class, poor and marginalized.

ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

REPARATIONS AND SELF-DETERMINATION IN OUR LIFETIME!

Khalid Raheem, Convener
