African freedom organizer, Emilsen Manyoma, murdered by Colombia State 

The Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations, condemns the assassination of unarmed African woman Emilsen Manyoma, a freedom organizer for African liberation in Colombia, by cowardly Colombian paramilitary State thugs on January 17, 2017.

We hold comrade Emilsen Manyoma in high esteem. She is an African martyr; she was murdered because of her courage, and willingness to fight for African national liberation against parasitic corporations.

The Black Is Back Coalition forwards African self-determination on MLK weekend with rally in D.C.! 

The Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIBC) held its Rally for Self-determination January 14, 2017 at Howard University. The Rally came on the heels of the National Black Political Agenda for Self-determination Convention that was held November 5 through November 6, 2016 in Washington D.C.

While many organizations and individual leaders such as Al Sharpton held marches and rallies throughout the weekend were doing so in response to the election of Donald Trump, the Coalition recognizes that there is a need for black self-determination despite who sits in the white people’s house.

Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday with a Rally for Self-determination! BLACK IS BACK! 

Thousands of black people will descend on the U.S. capital in Washington, D.C. on January 14, 2017, one day before the anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and six days before the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States.

We will rally for self-determination and declare to the world that, despite the rise of Donald Trump and his version of white nationalism, Black is Back! And we have our own National Black Political Agenda for Self-determination that we will fight for regardless of which political party or individual occupies the White House.

Black is Back march on White House: The black community has our own political agenda for self-determination! 

The African People’s Socialist Party has never had any illusions about the ability of the electoral process to provide freedom, justice or progress for our people, especially the African working class population of the U.S. and the world.

 This is why we were prepared when Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States in an upset victory over Hilary Clinton, the flag-bearer of the Democratic party of Barack Hussein Obama.
