They’ve met with ordinary Cubans who enthusiastically travel overseas whether it’s to defeat apartheid or the ebola virus. The Venceremos Brigade invites you to learn more about the Brigade, which will be travelling to Cuba this summer.

At Merritt College, the birthplace of the Black Panther Party, on the 74th birthday of its co-founder, Huey P.

Re-Build: New Afrikan People’s Assembly

This is a clarion call for us to set an example and take our struggle to the next level for our nation’s leadership, making this trip about more than speaking on a panel and educating the local community on our policy – it’s about the connection and face to face dialogue before and after the assembly with other cadre.
