The Uhuru Movement – history

The Uhuru Movement was formed by and is led by Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party and is based on the principles of African Internationalism.

Omali Yeshitela’s theory of African Internationalism is based on an understanding of capitalism as a “parasitic system that was born from the enslavement of African people and the oppression of colonized peoples worldwide.”

Yeshitela defines African Internationalism as a revolutionary theory through which political movements struggling to promote African liberation can understand society and social life.

African Internationalism offers a revolutionary theory that “unites the African people of the world in a revolutionary process to liberate Africa under the leadership of African workers and poor peasants.”

This concept links revolutionary movements in the continent of Africa and political movements that emerged “from within the colonized African population in the U.S.”

The Uhuru Movement is made up of several organizations that are working on diverse political fronts for the liberation of all African people everywhere. These organizations include the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project and the African People’s Education and Defense Fund.
