Obama, the election and the struggle for justice, peace, a better life and black power.
Can voting win justice and power for black people?
The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations is holding our annual conference in Newark, New Jersey under the theme: “Obama, the election and the struggle for justice, peace a better life and black power.”Most of us greeted the election of Barack Obama with hope and excitement in the U.S. and around the world. However, since his election the U.S. continues to make war and threats of war against people in the Middle East and elsewhere.
Also, the issues of jobs, the economic quarantine of our communities, police violence and mass incarceration are not even being addressed during the current presidential election campaign.
Can the electoral process be of any use to black people in our struggle for a decent life without fear and imposed violence and poverty? If so, how?
Join the Annual Conference of the Black is Back Coalition to examine all these issues and to get organized
