Revolution Books Black History Month Calendar: Yusef Salaam, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and More

"In the Age of Trump-Pence Fascism: Black History--The Fight for Emancipation and the Future"

Monday, February 13, 7:00pm

Yusef Salaam of the Central Park 5. In Conversation with Andy Zee and Carl Dix: "How the Trump Regime Will Be 'Giuliani Time' on Steroids, and What This Will Mean for Humanity."

Who better to bring this vividly to life than Yusef who, along with four other Black youth, spent 13 years in prison for the rape of a women in Central Park based on fabricated evidence and false confessions forced through torture. Donald Trump took out full-page ads calling for their execution. Even after the 5 were completely exonerated through DNA evidence, as recent as last year during the presidential campaign Trump insisted the boys, now grown men, were guilty.

Yusef Salaam, along with Andy Zee and Carl Dix, are among the initiators of RefuseFascism.org
