Description

From mutinies on slave ships to uprisings across the colonies to armed struggle against colonizers on the African continent, Africans have resisted capitalism and imperialism from the very first moment Europeans set foot on the shores of Africa.

Come smash the myth of the white savior delivering us from chattel slavery and learn about the hidden history of the African led abolitionist movement and our continuous resistance to capitalist exploitation.

We saved ourselves. Reclaim this history and use it to struggle forward.

This workshop is part of the #MayDayPDX political education campaign.
