Join The Center for Political Education, LeftRoots, and SFSU's Race and Resistance Studies Program for a book talk and forum on the recently released book "Claim No Easy Victories: The Legacy of Amilcar Cabral" with co-author Bill Fletcher, Jr. and other contributors. Last year marked the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Amilcar Cabral, revolutionary, poet, liberation philosopher, and leader of the independence movement of Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde. Cabral had a profound influence on the pan-Africanist movement and the black liberation movement in the US.

"Claim No Easy Victories: The Legacy of Amilcar Cabral," is a unique collection of essays featuring contemporary thinkers from across Africa and internationally reflecting on the legacy of this extraordinary individual and his relevance to contemporary struggles for self-determination and emancipation. Copies of the book will be available at the event with various contributors on hand to sign them.

Co-author Bill Fletcher, Jr. is a longtime labor, racial justice and international activist. He is an editorial board member and columnist for BlackCommentator.com and a senior scholar for the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC. He is the former president of TransAfrica Forum and a founder of the Black Radical Congress.

Interpretation (English to Spanish) and bilingual childcare will be provided during the program of the event.

Suggested Donation of $5-$10 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds.
