Omali Yeshitela, founder of the African People’s Socialist Party and the African Socialist International, is the featured speaker at Cuyamaca College’s Diversity Dialogues workshop, “Day in Solidarity with African People: Reparations for Stolen Black Lives,” set for 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, in the Performing Arts Center.

The African People’s Solidarity Day events held throughout the country are part of APSC’s campaign to raise awareness in the white community about conditions faced by African people in the United States and elsewhere and to raise funds in support of the Uhuru, or Black Liberation, Movement. The movement describes itself as an international organization which advocates the economic and political liberation of black Africans.
The solidarity day events feature Yeshitela, a Uhuru Movement leader, and African People’s Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess. The pair will discuss how whites and other allies can support the struggles of the black community.
