Join us for a discussion with Frank Chapman on the historic fight of Black people for self-determination, and the unbreakable ties between the struggles for Black liberation and socialism.

Frank Chapman is a veteran of the Black Liberation Movement. He was a victim of wrongful imprisonment as a young man, and then, like Malcom X, George Jackson and others, became politicized in prison. His release was won through a political struggle led by Angela Davis and the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (NAARPR). From 1981 through 1989, Frank was the executive director of the NAARPR, and currently leads the capaign of the Chicago Alliance to win an elected, civilian police accountability council. Frank is a leading member of Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) and author of the forthcoming book "A Marxist-Leninist Perspective on the Struggle for Socialism and Black Liberation."
