Black History Month is a product of the struggle for African and African American liberation. The Haitian Revolution, which took place from 1791-1804, marked the beginning of liberation movements by and for African and all enslaved peoples in the Western Hemisphere. We will look back at this significant event, and its continuation as Haiti bears the brunt of capitalist domination.

The forum will include an update on the case of U.S. political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal.

Pierre Labossiere – Co-Founder of the Haiti Action Committee (HAC) and the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund (HERF)

Robert Roth – Co-Founder of the Haiti Action Committee

Gerald Smith – Co-Founder of the Oscar Grant Committee Against Police Brutality (OGC) and an activist in the struggle to Free Mumia Abu Jamal
