“An auction for reparations is the total opposite of a slave auction.”

Art For Reparations (A4R) is a project of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people created by and accountable to the African People's Socialist Party (APSP). We work under the leadership of the APSP in the white community for reparations to African people.

On Sunday September 8th, 2019 at the Diesel Cafe in Somerville, MA, from 5-8pm we will hold a special art auction to benefit the Black Bower Blueprint! Based in St. Louis, MO under the leadership of Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela, the Black Power Blueprint is building economic development programs led by & for the working-class black community, such as: an Uhuru House venue space and community center; the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace; the Uhuru Jiko community-commercial kitchen; housing; community gardens and so much more.

The Art Auction will be followed by a 2 month exhibition on the history of the Uhuru Movement past & present, featuring historical photos, vintage posters, and current international campaigns for reparations from the Uhuru Solidarity Movement. Exhibit will run from Monday September 9th - Sunday November 10th, with a closing reception on the 10th from 6-8pm.

the 2019 Auction call for work is now closed. contact for more info.
