Tour to rally international support for APSP 5th Congress

On Thursday, May 13, the Uhuru House will host the St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay stop on Omali Yeshitela’s international speaking tour entitled “One People, One Party, One Destiny.” The events serve to rally support for the upcoming 5th Congress of the African People’s Socialist Party, set for July in Washington, D.C.

Watch it LIVE on

Yeshitela is returning from a year-long organizing tour with stops in Toronto, Canada; Nairobi, Kenya; Freetown, Sierra Leone, San Francisco and Oakland, California; Houston, Texas; and Miami, Florida; where he has spoken before enthusiastic audiences of students, workers and peasants who are looking for solutions to the economic and political crises crippling African communities.

Inspired by Marcus Garvey’s call for “Africa for Africans, at home and abroad,” Yeshitela has built branches of the African Socialist International in West and East Africa, Britain, the Caribbean, South America, the U.S. and Canada.

Declaring that “Africa is not poor. Africa is being looted!,” Yeshitela argues that the liberation of Africa is the critical step towards a just world without war, violence, oppression and poverty.

May 13 is your chance to learn about the philosophy behind the actions of the Uhuru Movement. Meet African Socialist International Chairman Omali Yeshitela and hear his explanation for why things are how they are and what the future holds for black communities worldwide. Raise the questions you’ve always wanted to ask.

The event is free, open to the public and will include entertainment and refreshments. Attendees will have the opportunity to contribute funds to the Party’s Congress. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. The Uhuru House is located at 1245 18th Ave. South in St. Petersburg. For more information, call 727-821-6621.
