Reparations!

Build Your Organization

Name your organization/campaign/coalition. Consider these differences
Revolutionary Party: the African People’s Socialist Party
Revolutionary Movement: Such as the Uhuru Movement (a collection of organizations under a the leadership of the APSP, such as the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement)
A mass organization political organization: does not consist of people with all the same political ideology but it is guided by revolutionary principles that unite the people into one organization. The goal of these organizations are to meet the masses of working class people “at their political door” and bring them into political life. The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) is an example of this as was the African National Reparations Organization and the African National Women’s Organization.
A coalition: Just as it sounds, this is a group of organizations. They come together based on a common set of demands and a defined set of principles of unity. This allows different groups to have common goals and objectives, to respect their differences or, at least, have a principled and democratic way to work around them. An example of this is the Black is Back Coalition. BIBC Principles of Unity
(Links to an external site.)
BIBC National Black Political Agenda for Self-Determination
(Links to an external site.)
Demands. What does your organization want? What does your organization believe?
Membership. Who is eligible for membership in your organization/movement and what is its structure? Would it be a singular multinational organization (meaning anyone of any nationality or “race” can be in leadership)? Will the organization consist solely of African/Black people? Will the organization or movement consist of different nationalities but have African/Black leadership and defined principles of solidarity (such as the Uhuru Movement has with the African People’s Solidarity Committee and the Mexican revolutionary organization, Union del Barrio). Using historical examples from the readings we have done, and lecture material, explain the reasons for your organizational structure.
Location. Will the organization be local, national or international? Explain your reasoning.

Build Your Plan of Action

Introduction and Overview. Your introduction and overview generally introduces people to the campaign and the issue at hand. For the sake of this research project, it will be a little more extensive than normal. In your introduction and overview I want you to do the following:
Introduction. Using the readings, I want you to offer a history of the historical struggle for reparations. Examining The Burning Spear, “A Day of Reckoning,” and writings of Omali Yeshitela, you will explain the historical struggles for reparations to African people. Then, you will explain how your organization fits into that long history of struggle. You should explicitly talk about the APSP and Uhuru Movement, African National Reparations Organization and the Reparations Tribunals, N’COBRA, the Black is Back Coalition, and also older historical examples that Robin Kelly Identifies. This segment should be 600 words long and include appropriate citations.
Overview. In this segment, you make the case for your reparations campaign. Using information that we have learned in the class, paying close attention to the essays “Pay us the value of our stolen Black labor,” “US guilty of crimes against Africans,” and “The Case for Reparations,” this should be directly giving the political and economic reasoning for reparations as a political demand. What are the arenas of struggle that your campaign will focus on (housing, education, healthcare, poverty, etc.)? How will your organization put the reparations you win to work for practical changes in society? If all of the goals of your organization are completed, what will success look like? This segment should be 600 words long and include appropriate citations.
Goals. What are the goals of your reparations campaign? These should be concrete goals, they can bear similarity to your organization’s overall demands.
Objectives. In a Plan of Action, the objectives are the steps that you will take to achieve these goals.
Roles and Responsibilities of the campaign. Who are the people that will get the work done?
Schedule and Calendar of Events. This lays out the road to victory. The best way to build a calendar of events for a POA is to move backwards. Set a date for your final event and then build the events backwards in time
Legal. Public tribunals, taking the case to the international court and on the world stage. Consider the presentations to the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South African in 2001, the Africans Charge Genocide United Nations Strategy, as well as the World Tribunals held by ANRO.
Political. Will there be ballot measures and campaign candidates? What is the purpose of electoral politics to your campaign and organization? Consider the way Eritha Akile Canion in St. Petersburg, Florida or Herdosia Kalambayi Bentum in St. Louis have put reparations on the ballot. Consider the way that seasoned politicians like Charles Barron have committed their careers to supporting the struggles for reparations. (I know you have not learned about these people LOL! Search blackisbackcoalition.org, theburningspear.com, and legitimate websites for information.)
Cultural. Culture is an important strategy to rally the masses. Consider the way that dead prez functioned as the artistic wing of the Uhuru Movement in the early 2000s. Be bold, think of movies, books, novels, television shows, and other things you would do to raise the consciousness of the masses. Also, consider the “scorched earth” policies of the Reparations Now campaign led by the Uhuru Movement where they used posters, graffiti stencils, buttons, t-shirts and other measures.
Direct Action. How will you mobilize the masses? Petitions, marches, protests.
Information and Education strategy. How will you get your information to the masses. This overlaps with the cultural strategy but it also looks like formal information and education sources. This includes but is not limited to newspaper articles, the creation of your own newspaper or journal, television shows, podcasts, webinars, and pamphlets.
