The campaign is real, let’s boost this….

Why august? Lol

It’s a hotter month, since we are technically a tropical people.It’s a longer month then February, which is the shortest month.
Brief Historical Outline of “Black August”
A sampling of this month of “righteous rebellion” and “racist repression” includes:
The first Afrikans were brought to Jamestown as slaves in August of 1619.Gabriel Prosser’s slave rebellion occurred on August 30th, 1800.The “Prophet” Nat Turner planned and executed a slave rebellion that commenced on August 21, 1831.In 1843, Henry Highland Garnett called a general slave strike on August 22.The Underground Railroad was started on August 2, 1850.The March on Washington occurred in August of 1963The Watts rebellions were in August of 1965.On August 18, 1971 the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika (RNA) was raided by Mississippi police and FBI agents.On August 8, 1978 Philadelphia police initiated a shootout against MOVE membersFurther, August is a time of birth. Dr. Mutulu Shakur (New Afrikan prisoner of war), Pan-Africanist Leader Marcus Garvey, Maroon Russell Shoatz (political prisoner) and Chicago Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton were born in August. August is also a time of transition and rebirth. The great scholar and educator W.E.B. Dubois died in Ghana on August 27, 1963. So, August is a month during which New Afrikans can reflect on our current situation and our struggle for self-determination and freedom.
