WEBINAR: The Challenge of Radical Black Movement Building In the Context of Crisis: An Intergenerational Discussion

The challenge for building an effective, independent Black radical movement has never been more apparent than today, as the ruling elite is in complete disarray because of the ongoing and deepening capitalist crisis. Joe Biden’s neoliberal project will not be able to reverse the crisis in Black and other colonized communities, as well as among the general working class. As an alliance of radical African forces, the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) sees the challenge as building structures and institutions that consolidate independent Black working-class power that protect our interests while the U.S. state increasingly relies on repression and war to maintain dominance of the colonial-capitalist system. Bringing together voices and experiences that span over five decades of movement building, “The Challenge of Radical Black Movement Building In the Context of Crisis: An Intergenerational Discussion” will tackle the political, cultural and organizational challenges we face in attempting to develop new resistance structures that meet the demands of the moment.
