2501 Harrison Street
The birthplace of our Chicago-based comrade Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr. is being targeted for foreclosure. It’s time to turn out to preserve the home where Mama Akua Njeri, formerly known as Deborah Johnson, raised her son and from where they carry on the Panther legacy of organizing their community to bring an end to predatory smash and grab tactics that cause so many to suffer in their community.
Join Community Ready Corps (Allies and Accomplices) for a conversation between community activist Cat Brooks and Mama Akua as they talk about the ongoing work and calling of Black women and girls who are at the center of this year’s #BlackSolidarityWeek.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Black Solidarity Fund and will be used to support the efforts to #SaveTheHamptonHouse. Please bring your wallet and be prepared to make a donation or a pledge so that we can send Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. and Mama Akua home to Chicago feeling our love and support.
Tickets are sliding scale from $5-$80, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You will be able to purchase tickets at the door, but space will be reserved for people who purchase tickets in advance (scroll down). Tickets purchased at the door will be $5-$100.
