The Black Hammer Organization is in its initial stages for our project “Hammer City.” The project involves building a self-sustainable, self-governing community, complete with housing, agriculture, electricity, and plumbing. “It’s a tangible, material answer to police violence, racist policies in the healthcare system, the education system, and the global pandemic,” says Chief Ina, the Black Hammer top official over the entire project. “These recent rebellions are the culmination of years of our genocide within this system and Hammer City is stepping away from that, and not just building a city, but returning sovereignty to the indigenous people.” Black Hammer has . . .
Image description — Black and white photo with a fist raised in the Black Power salute. Some words in white lettering are laid over it, from Ashanti Alston, which read: “I think of being Black not so much as an ethnic category but as an oppositional force or touchstone for looking at situations differently. Black culture has always been oppositional and is all about finding ways to creatively resist oppression. So, when I speak of a Black anarchism, it is not so tied to the color of my skin but who I am as a person, as someone who can resist, who . . .

May 25th, 2020, represents the 62nd commemoration of African Liberation Day (ALD). African Liberation Day was originally founded on April 15th, 1958, as Africa Freedom Day during the All African People’s Conference held by Kwame Nkrumah and the Convention People’s Party in Ghana. For many people of African descent today (“all people of African descent are Africans and belong to the African nation” – Kwame Nkrumah in Class Struggle in Africa, 1970), it can be difficult for them to understand our focus on Africa and African liberation.
