Uhuru everyone! Because of YOU on #GivingTuesday this past week, the Black Power Blueprint exceeded our goal to raise the funds needed to begin construction on the Community Basketball Court in North St. Louis!
Thank you for everything you did to make this happen! Thank you to all of our donors, our volunteers, supporters and everyone who made phone calls, put up posters, flyers, promoted the campaign on social media and contributed in so many other ways. Together we have officially raised over $140,000 for this dynamic program of African self-determination.
Like I said from the beginning, this is about rebuilding our community. All of you are a part of making this happen. This is another victory for the African community. Another victory in our movement for political and economic power in our own hands.
We did it. You did it. We are winning! Uhuru!
At the site of the recent demolition of the condemned properties at 4007-4009 West Florissant, Jath Construction works on stacking all the bricks and removing the debris. The African working class getting it done!
On behalf of the entire Black Power Blueprint team, and African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF) Board President Ona Zené Yeshitela, we want to thank all of our volunteers and donors.
We want you to see where your money and effort and your time and your energy goes. It goes right into this project, we put it right into the community
On Monday, August 17 – the birthday of Marcus Garvey – we celebrated the expansion of the Black Power Blueprint by starting the demolition of two more properties left to rot for the past 30 years. In its place we are considering building a retail space. These sites will continue our liberation of land for the economic future of the African working class!
