White St. Louisans rally for Black reparations in Tower Grove Park
Reposted from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Uhuru means freedom in Swahili — and on Saturday, it became a rallying cry for white people seeking justice for the Black community.
A group of about 45 people, most of them white, marched Saturday morning up South Grand Boulevard and held a rally at the northeast corner of Tower Grove Park as part of the March for Reparations, which took place in five cities across the country.
It’s part of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people working with the African People’s Socialist Party against Black oppression and exploitation in the U.S.
