Back in the USSR begins Black History Month by focusing on the bitter truth of how African-Americans remain a colonized people within a racist American society. Racism exists and remains virulent in this age of Trump, rising fascism, hate and escalating violence. Afro-Americans continue to be killed by the police. Working class black people in particular continue to live in poverty and continue to face systemic discrimination in schools, in housing, and on the job market. America’s prisons remain disproportionately packed with black people and African-American political prisoners remain behind bars. It’s this issue of political prisoners that I want to begin with tonight, because America has them and has them in considerable numbers in spite of the American government’s wholesale denial of this fact.
Music by Paul Robeson ("Ol' Man River"), M1 ("Sacrifice"), Amir Sulaiman ("Brother")
