WHAT'S THE BLACK POWER BLUEPRINT? The Black Power Blueprint is a project of the African People's Socialist Party led by Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela. It is an anti-gentrification project which is rapidly transforming the dire conditions of the black community in St. Louis into a thriving cultural hub of community programs such as: the Uhuru House venue space & African community center; Uhuru Jiko community commercial kitchen; the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace; a basketball court, community gardens, a 50 foot flagpole with the Red Black and Green flag, and so much more! Follow the Black Power Blueprint on facebook & youtube for their weekly social justice talk shows, every Tuesday at 7pm EST: facebook.com/BlackPowerBlueprint

USM is an organization of white people created by and accountable to the African People's Socialist Party. We organize in the white community for reparations to African people.
