April 4th Study on "The Black Jacobins" (revolution in Haiti)

Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee and author of "Overturning the Culture of Violence," will lead a study of "The Black Jacobins," a powerful book on the revolution in Haiti that helps give context to the situation today.

This is a follow up to the study held by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement on February 20th. Penny Hess will deepen our understandings of the conditions faced by African people in Haiti during the period of slavery, the social forces at play in the Caribbean and Europe and the heroic African resistance that resulted in the first successful African-led workers' revolution in the western hemisphere.

People are encouraged to read the book ahead of the study, but that is not required.

Penny will give an overview of the book, read from some selected passages and then open it up for discussion.

So mark your calendars and join us for this important study!
