Madame Fathia, W.E.B. DuBois, President Kwame Nkrumah and Shirley Graham DuBois in Ghana in 1963 on the 95th Birthday of Dr. DuBois.

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Noon – 5:00 pm

5920 Second Ave., Detroit, MI (two blocks north of Wayne State U.)

May 25, 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the continental organization formed by all of the heads of state to accelerate the liberation from colonialism and the political, economic and social unification of Africa.

After five decades of the OAU and its successor, the African Union, formed in 2002, it is necessary for a thorough assessment of the progress and challenges facing Africa and the Diaspora in light of the escalating imperialist militarism being carried out by the United States, France, Britain and other NATO countries.

Featured Speakers Include:

  • Rita Kiki Edozie, Director of African and African American Studies at Michigan State University in Lansing
  • Abayomi Azikwe, Editor of the Pan-African News

We urge you to join us on Thursday, Aug. 30 at the Wyandotte Public Schools Administration Building, 639 Oak St., Wyandotte (six blocks west of Biddle/Jefferson south of Ford St./Northline Rd.) at 10 AM sharp.

African American students and white friends, at the middle school, have been victims of racial threats, bullying and intimidation for over 14 months!  This situation has repeatedly been brought to the attention of the principal, the school board, the superintendent of schools and the police who have refused to do anything.  The cops have harassed the parents who brought the complaints.  One of those who threatened the children is now in jail – only because he assaulted a cop who went to talk to him. Several others, friends of his, are continuing the threats.

The parents have called for a picket line from 10 AM to 11 AM Thursday.  Be there to stand with the students and their parents – let Wyandotte know that we won’t put up with this. For more information call 313-680-5508.

Five of the anti-fascist, anti-racist youth were arrested. Jason W. Sutherland, Cody L. Sutherland, Dylan J. Sutherland, Alex R. Stuck and John S. Tucker are being held in jail, unable to raise the outrageous bail of $1 million.
