“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 we raised over $2200 in art sales for the Black Power Blueprint! Plus other generous donations have made us meet our total goal of $2500! Thank you so much to all our artists, donors, volunteers and attendees for making it such a successful event!
