  • People's Platform - Black August

    This month for our People's Platform we will commemorate Black August by exploring the intersection of mass incarceration and gentrification.


    About Black August
    Settle your quarrels, come together, understand the reality of our situation, understand that fascism is already here, that people are dying who could be saved, that generations more will die or live poor butchered half-lives if you fail to act. Do what must be done, discover your humanity and your love of Revolution. Pass on the torch. Join us, give your life for the people. -George Jackson

    During Black August, we commemorate the struggle for Black liberation, the sacrifice of political prisoners, and the injustice of mass incarceration, as well as remembrance of the death of George Jackson, a Black revolutionary who was assassinated by guards during a prison rebellion at San Quentin on August 21, 1971. Quentin Six veteran Sundiata Tate’s described Black August as occasion to “embrace the principles of unity, self-sacrifice, political education, physical training and resistance.”
