Day 14: The training of African Revolutionaries at Party Intensive in St Petersburg, Florida

Our morning started off with the flag raising ceremony.

The highlights of the day were as follows:

All units got to present their leaflets for critique by Yejide Orunmila who led the working session on Monday.

Omowale Kefing , long time editor of the Burning Spear Newspaper, and Rich Piedrahita, the Party’s Art Director joined her on the panel. The critiques measured effectiveness of the leaflets, examining how well the units conveyed their messages through their layout and design choices.

For many of the unit members it was their first time using a computer to design a leaflet, but the final products looked good.

Next we had a workshop on "How to do a Fundraiser" led by APSC member Janice Kant, followed by an actual planning of a fundraiser. Each unit was assigned a specific type of fundraiser.

Unit 1, the Lawrence Mann Team. had to plan a gala fundraiser, our unit was combined with unit 4, the Che Guevara Team to plan a political event fundraiser, and unit 3, the Biko Lumumba Team had to plan a food booth fundraiser within 45 minutes.

After which our fundraiser plans were judged by the Office of Deputy Chair. Unit 3 the Biko Lumumba Team was chosen as having the best plan.

Lastly, Diop Olugbala and Janice Kant from the Office of the Deputy Chair, gave a workshop on “Working with Volunteers”. It was very informative and inspiring for the entire cadre.

On a more somber note, we learned today that comrade Yejide was leaving the intensive early. She is a true comrade, in every since of the word and she will be missed. Her contributions to the intensive are immeasurable.

We closed out the day with the flag retrieval ceremony, followed by dinner.

Forward to the Revolution Cadre!
