Comrades triumphantly raise fists at the Illinois State Convention.


Over the weekend, Africans in New York, Washington D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Kansas, Texas and Illinois convened in their respective states to adopt the black people’s agenda which consists of a Declaration and 19-points.

Eleven states in all have signed onto the Black Power Agenda (including Florida, Missouri and Alabama) and are organizing Africans throughout their states to the National Black Political Convention

Our black people’s Agenda was sparked by the historical failure and betrayal of both white ruling class parties to solve what are considered “black people” problems and the uttered uneasiness the present U.S. presidential candidates evoke in the stomach pits of Africans trapped in the U.S.

African people stuck in the U.S. have come to a consensus: we have our own National Black Political Agenda for Self-Determination and will gather on November 5th and 6th in Washington D.C., just days before the white people’s election on November 8th.

A convention of resistance!

Initiated by the Black Is Back Coalition (BIBC) for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations––an organization of organizations which was formed in November of 2009 as a result of the U.S. presidency of Barack Obama––this black people’s declaration is a declaration of independence from any white ruling class party or organization.

The BIBC is again leading the charge and assisting the many Africans who are dismayed and fed up with the everyday police murders, water poisoning and impoverishment forced on our community with a real practical 19-point agenda which we can collectively implement to counter and solve our current condition ourselves.  

We are now in another imperialist election season where we see the frantic unrest of white people in particular. White people who live on stolen land without the readied access of the resources once easily strong-armed from Africans and the other colonized poor peoples around the world.

The righteous resistance of our oppressed brothers and sisters who are fighting globally for the control of our own oil, gold, land for the fulfilment of our own interests and our own futures is leaving masses of white people in United States with red faces. 

Multitudes of white people mobilized by the U.S. presidential bids of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders exposes the weakness of imperialism, in its inability to satiate the desires of a prosperous white future for white masses.        

History has provided the strongest evidence of why we cannot equate the security of the oppressor with our own. The oppressor’s security comes at the expense of the oppressed. When the oppressed experience justice the oppressor will be dead, no longer able to feast off the production of the people.

We, the black community, finally have our own agenda! To view our 19-point black people’s Agenda, visit and join us on November 5th and 6th in Washington D.C. for the National Black Political Agenda for Self-Determination Convention.

This will be a convention of resistance!

Black Is Back...Black Is Back...Got Damn, Black Is Black!

We are ready to govern!

Black Power Matters!
