Black Solidarity Day

Every Monday before elections we celebrate Black Solidarity Day, founded by former Panamanian ambassador to the United Nations, and Brooklyn College Professor, Carlos Russell. His call to “protest against the intensifying repression that threatens the very existence of black people in America” is being echoed across the world today. It was first observed on November 3, 1969, against the backdrop of the Black Power Movement and a post-Civil-Rights-era America, strategically observed one day prior to elections day.

Brooklyn. All in.
