Day 8: The training of African revolutionaries at Party Intensive in St Petersburg, Florida

Today opened up with the raising of the national colors of the African nation, the red, black and green, illuminated by the morning light on the flagpole high above the Uhuru House.
We came together for an educational workshop on how to sell The Burning Spear newspaper, led by comrade Wil Lockett who started off by having the group read the Point of the Spear in order to arm ourselves with knowledge of the Spear's contents as primary preparation to go out and organize the people.
Participants came up to the mic and shared their experiences selling the Burning Spear.
Then we broke into units and went out for outreach. Unit 4's APSC members went out into the Williams Park Saturday morning market to organize North Americans, winning white people to take the pledge of solidarity with African people, and purchase The Burning Spear newspaper.
We came back to the Uhuru House for summation where comrades summed up their experience with engaging with the masses in the community.
Africans from Units 1, 2, and 3 reported on the receptiveness of the African community in south St Pete to the Spear and message of African Internationalism.
The intensive broke for lunch. We came back that evening to enjoy the tremendously moving play, The Meeting, produced by Black Star Industries.
The live performance was about the supposed meeting between Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
Ron Bobb Semple, the play's director, also performed his Spirit of Marcus Garvey presentation.
The evening of theatrical brilliance brought the packed Akwaaba Hall attendees to their feet roaring with applause.

Another incredible day in the cadre intensive. Forward to day 9!
