Invites you to

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa And the Genius of Walter Rodney

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2022 | 6 – 8 PM PST


What an opportunity it is to join beloved comrades for the launch of the National Leadership School for Strategic Organizing! To begin this journey with study and debate about one of Walter Rodney’s greatest contributions to our theoretical and historic foundation—”How Europe Underdeveloped Africa”—with some of the most respected and dedicated organizers and brilliant social movement theoreticians amongst us, is an event not to be missed.

In the current political climate, where racialized capitalism has underinvested in so many of our communities, bringing seasoned organizers together not only to access what got us here, but to debate what multi-tactical strategies can move us toward liberation is critically important.

I can’t wait to be one in the number. Spread the word. Join us.

Much love and solidarity,
Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson
