Black Power Blueprint recently met with DERU Architects and Paradigm Builders to finalize plans for laying the concrete walkway and building the stage and stage covering for the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace and Gary Brooks Community Garden.

This multi-purpose outdoor event space being developed across the street from the St. Louis Uhuru House will be a beautiful destination that fosters community commerce and economic opportunities.

Thanks to our supporters we are one step closer to this vision becoming a reality.

Photos from Halloween at the St. Louis Uhuru House

On Wednesday, October 31st, the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF) hosted Uhuru Halloween Haunted Night at the St. Louis Uhuru House. It was fun for the whole family with treats, activities for kids, music and a costume contest.

APEDF has sponsored this popular community event for many years at the St. Petersburg, Florida Uhuru House and has now brought the tradition to St. Louis.

Local volunteers and supporters around the country make this and other programs of APEDF and Black Power Blueprint happen! Thank you!
