EPISODE DESCRIPTION

PRESS PLAY TO HEAR THE OFFICIAL PROMO ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

 

Black August is here and it is a month in which we commemorate the struggles and triumphs of our freedom fighters turned political prisoners, some of whom went into exile, others assassinated - from the brothas and sistas who organized free breakfast programs and community clinics, to those who were convicted of helping to bust fellow freedom fighters out of prison, who organized prison rebellions in order to acquire basic human rights, and those who spoke out against the abuses of this government against the poor and so-called minorities and thus suffered greatly for it. We must never forget their stories, their efforts, nor their accomplishments, and must relate to future generations how their sacrifices changed our lives for the better. To learn more, the following are some of the gatherings in ATLANTA that will be addressing the human rights violations, history and present day effects that were born out of the Black Power Movement:
