The Days in Solidarity with African People (DSAP) is the Uhuru Solidarity Movement’s most important event of the year.

The DSAP campaign is based on the principle that solidarity from the white community with the struggle of oppressed peoples must translate into dollars and cents. We must put our money where our mouths are.

All of the resources benefit the economic and social programs of the African People’s Socialist Party, and Black Star Industries, uniting Africans worldwide in the struggle for their freedom, justice and power.

Unity Through Reparations!
