The African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) was founded in 1976 by the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) as a way for Euro-American/ European (white) people to join the African liberation struggle, working directly under the leadership of the APSP.
We organize other white people like ourselves to take a stand in solidarity with the struggle for the liberation and unification of Africa and African people everywhere.
African Internationalism – toward a borderless world
The African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), founded in 1972, grew out of the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements of the 1960s to represent the interests of African workers around the world.
APSP chapters worldwide make up the African Socialist International (ASI). Known as the Garvey Movement of the 21st Century, it aims to liberate and unite African people everywhere – “One Africa! One Nation! One Billion Strong!”
The APSP is guided by African Internationalism, a revolutionary political theory to understand and change the world. It explains that exploitation of African resources and stolen Indigenous land are the foundation of the U.S.-led global economy which has a minority of people living at the expense of the rest the world.
But as African and oppressed peoples organize for control of their own land and resources, the oppressive system of imperialism and colonialism are dying away. A new system based on human needs, nobody at the expense of another, is emerging.
Role of white people
APSC organizes white community support for campaigns to stop the war on African people.
We hold Days in Solidarity with African People, an annual series of events to raise awareness and resources for the work of the African People’s Socialist Party.
We raise resources for APSP programs through the donor campaign and participate in APSP-led economic development campaigns such as Uhuru Foods & Pies, Uhuru Furniture stores and the Uhuru Flea Market. This is a stand of reparations to African people through solidarity with the organization that leads the movement to liberate and unite Africa and African people everywhere.
