What Is Black August and How is it Commemorated?
It’s Black August again and there are some misconceptions around what Black August is. It is NOT a celebration of “Being Black in August” nor is it just an event. Black August is a commemoration dedicated to the lives of Our Political Prisoners some who have joined the Ancestors and others who languish in America’s gulags known as the prison industrial complex. Here we have included a calendar and also information on how Black August is properly observed. In the Spirit of Each one Teach One, let us properly educate and inspire others through OUR collective efforts. For the event promoters, In honor of the Freedom Fighters we are commemorating please make sure your event is in line with the liberation struggle rather than just slapping on the title Black August as a fad. Together we will win, Black August Resistance!
