SummaryAPSC Chair Penny Hess will discuss the upcoming event "An Evening With Chairman Omali Yeshitela," which is to be held on September 13th at the Uhuru House in St. Pete, to honor Chairman Omali Yeshitela for the 50th anniversary of courageously taking down the racist mural from St. Petersburg City Hall in 1966. During the second half of our broadcast, we will interview Bruce Wright, a local (St. Pete, Florida) activist and friend of the Uhuru Movement, who recently lost a first amendment case in federal court. Imperialist powers attempted to silence Wright for bringing attention to the colonial violence faced by Africans in St. Pete at the hands of the police.
