For the past 5 years, Eric Mann has been reflecting, re-publishing, and re-establishing the legacy of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“This year as with every year, we work to protect and expand Dr. King’s legacy from those who would bury it in a grave. We celebrate Dr. King as one of the great revolutionaries in U.S. and world history whose challenge to all of us shapes our work and should shape yours. Every year I reframe and publish this essay with the goal of expanding the discussion and debate about a Black and Third World led anti-racist, anti-imperialist, climate justice united front.”

Take action as we continue to fight for Black Liberation, and rights to the left of the Democrats. Direct Action organizing is what we need. Agreement, trust, and willingness to fight is what we need. You are who we need.

“… as our government practices “civil liberties” for the whites and mass round ups of the Blacks,, I urge readers from veterans of the civil rights movement to the young, gifted, and Black, Latinx, Indigenous leaders, to drill deep into Black revolutionary history to present our choices.”

TOMORROW, Thursday, January 21st, The Strategy Center will host it’s first virtual event of 2021. Join us as Eric discusses, elaborates on, improvises from, and experiments with key ideas from this important article. We host movement conversations to move us all to action.
