In Solidarity: Black August 2020

In the wake of ongoing nationwide protests over systemic racism and the killings of Black and Brown people at the hands of police, we created and disseminated a series of graphics in solidarity with “Black August.” The main goal of this month-long celebration is to honor and learn about

Black-led resistance movements, especially the movement to free all political prisoners. 

Black August was started in the 1970s to mark the assassination of George Jackson, Black Panther political prisoner and author of Soledad Brother, to embrace the principles of “unity, self-sacrifice, political education, physical training and resistance.”
