“An auction for reparations is the total opposite of a slave auction.”
Art For Reparations (A4R) is a project of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people created by and accountable to the African People's Socialist Party (APSP). We work under the leadership of the APSP in the white community for reparations to African people.
On Sunday September 8th, 2019 at the Diesel Cafe in Somerville, MA, from 5-8pm we will hold a special one-night-only art auction to benefit the Black Bower Blueprint! Based in St. Louis, MO under the leadership of Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela, the Black Power Blueprint is building economic development programs led by & for the working-class black community, such as: an Uhuru House venue space and community center; the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace; the Uhuru Jiko community-commercial kitchen; housing; community gardens and so much more.
Deadline to submit is July 31st, 2019. To submit your artwork to the auction please fill out THIS FORM or contact email@example.com
This is a national call for artwork for a curated exhibition. All people and ages are welcome to submit work across all mediums. The exhibition will be in a cafe environment. Open to traditional art that can be framed, as well a custom services or lessons to be auctioned off.
