African People's Socialist Party, 1978


Scope and Contents

This file consists of several documents published by the African People’s Socialist Party. The first and longest document is a 1978 report of APSP activities and initiatives, such as demonstrations in support of imprisoned African Americans, conferences, and lectures. Notably, this document discusses the formation of the African National Prison Organization, an organization with publications in our file system. Other pieces include a flyer with information about how to support the cause of Dessie Woods, a black woman imprisoned for killing a man attempting to kill and rape her and a companion, an edition of their self-published newspaper “The Burning Spear” which discusses the failure of the black revolution and the rise of the “black petty bourgeousie,” and finally an announcement of a speaking tour by Omalu Yeshitela, the chairman of the ASPS.
