African People's Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess and Uhuru Solidarity Movement organizer Jesse Nevel discuss the Pew Research Center study showing that the wealth gap between white families and African families is wider than ever, with white people owning 20 times the wealth of African people.

This is an excerpt from the Reparations in Action show on UhuruRadio.com, originally aired on July 31, 2011. To hear the full broadcast, visit the shows archives:


As a part of its strategy to forward the African Revolution, the African People's Socialist Party has established and leads the African People's Solidarity Committee, to build principled and accountable support from the white community.

Learn more about the African People's Solidarity Committee:

"Reparations in Action!" presents a weekly, live discussion on the philosophy, analysis and strategy involved in winning and organizing white people to solidarity with the international African revolution.


The Uhuru Movement recognizes that we are in a war of ideas. This is a war between the dying forces of white power imperialism and the emerging forces of African Socialism for the minds of the masses of poor and oppressed people. Today Imperialism has constructed a media cartel that serves the interest of the white ruling class. This international media apparatus serves to justify the brutal oppression carried out by imperialism every day. Moreover, its objective is to ideologically unite the European nation at the expense of the African nation.

This Imperialist media propaganda machine currently has a monopoly on the distribution of ideas. These ideas are intended to define our reality and shape our worldview. However, it is time for the African working class to speak for ourselves. It is time the world be seen from the perspective of the poor and oppressed masses.

UhuruNews.com is Black Power in the 21st Century. It is the vision and voice of the African working-class. Our interest is to tell the truth; showing the world as it is. Our mission is to bring voice to the most oppressed and exploited sectors of the African world.

Finally, we understand that it is just a matter of time before the revolutionary ideals expressed here becomes a material force that will destroy imperialism and liberate Africa and her children dispersed throughout the world.


As the African liberation movement builds rapidly throughout Africa and the world, it's s urgent that we expand our ability to communicate and unite the struggles of African people towards victory and independence in our lifetime. We need your support - subscribe to Uhuru Radio now!
