    The panelists at this African Liberation Day symposium will present opposing views on the significance of the Obama candidacy. They come from some of the most dynamic and active organizations that are tackling growing crises in African communities today, including poverty and malnutrition, denial of health care or quality education, police violence and unjust imprisonment.

    With less than half of African youth graduating from high school and one in nine African men of child bearing age in prison in America, African Liberation Day organizers are comparing today’s prison labor economy to the post-slavery convict leasing program where special laws were created to force Africans back into forced labor. They seek to expose the intentional steering of well-qualified African homebuyers into sub-prime loans, resulting in a devastating loss of wealth in African communities. Some say that a review of Obama’s backers, advisors and policies reveal an agenda that will deepen the oppression and suffering of African people on both sides of the Atlantic.
