African Liberation Day 2017 Update!

 

ALD is just a few days away and we are putting the final touches on what will undoubtedly be another memorable celebration. We have a great lineup of speakers and entertainment. This year, Elaine Brown, former chairperson of the Black Panther Party will be our keynote speaker. In addition to Elaine, we will have many other speakers from various organizations sharing their experiences and showing their solidarity with ALD.

 

Heading up the cultural performers is Kujichagulia and Val Serrant. Kujichagulia is known for her wide variety of talents – from African dance, singing, drumming to her hard-hitting and conscious spoken word. If you haven’t had an opportunity to see her, you don’t want to miss her upcoming performance!  Candice Antique Davis, singer, songwriter and educator will be on stage also.

 

The day will begin with a short march through the community led by Oakland’s own Original Scraper Bike Team. Please join us and let your voice be heard for ALD! The march begins at 12pm.

 

The A-APRP has worked hard to make ALD an institution in the global African community. It is a day unique to us and therefore we should embrace and celebrate it with pride and joy. It is a day to look back, recognize and honor the struggle that has come before us and to look forward to assess and plan our future actions.
