Celebrate Juneteenth in Berkeley: Come to the Revolution Books Booth

Sunday, 6/19, 11-7pm. Our booth will be on Adeline between Fairview and Woolsey.

Juneteenth—June 19—is the day on which the emancipation of Black people from chattel slavery is celebrated. It took a civil war to end it—a civil war in which Black people fought and died out of proportion to their numbers in the population.  And yet, in basic terms, Black people are still not free. The white supremacy poured into the foundations of this society still remains woven deeply into its fabric. But there IS an answer: revolution.

We will bring BAsics and other works by Bob Avakian and many books on African American history, culture and resistance. Watch this talk BOB AVAKIAN FOR THE LIBERATION OF BLACK PEOPLE AND THE EMANCIPATION OF ALL HUMANITY (Seg 4)  and read BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian, which begins with: "There would be no United States as we now know it today without slavery. That is a simple and basic truth." BAsics 1:1.
