Howard University Resist
The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC), the party of Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Toure and Kwame Ture (whom you may remember as Stokely Carmichael) and its women’s wing, the All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (GC), send you and HU Resist revolutionary greetings.
We salute you and direct our gratitude, our solidarity and our support to the courageous students of HU Resist; and to all Howard University students – previously, currently and in the future – who, for what is correct and just, are involved in and support the “A (Administration) Building Take Over” at Howard, which began on March 29, 2018.
As Howard University students continue the legacy of resistance, rebellion and revolutionary Pan-African struggle, our Party stands, steadfast and uncompromising, with you. We commend you for protecting and advancing the integrity of Howard and all Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States, and institutions of higher learning in Africa and the African Diaspora.
The A-APRP (GC) stands with your principled commitment and determination. You will win, as history resides on the side of the just!
Please take a minute and recall the profound words of Frantz Fanon because they are so germane to the battle that you have chosen, “Each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.”
Recall also the Fireside Chat that Kwame Ture, a former student and life-long alumni, delivered at Howard shortly before he made his way home, to his beloved Guinea and Africa to transition to our ancestors. Perhaps HU Resist can watch and discuss it during the long-nights ahead. Recall also and gather insight and strength from Kwame’ self-authored obituary, which is chiseled on his Grave-Site in Conakry, Guinea.
“Kwame Ture dies in his beloved Africa, affirming that if Africa’s children cannot alleviate her suffering, we can at least share them fully.”
(June 29, 1941 – November 15, 1998. Burial on November 22, 1998)
Victory is certain,

Ready for Revolution!!
