An encore presentation of We Saved Ourselves – presented in partnership with Building Power for Black New Mexico. From mutinies on slave ships to uprisings across the colonies to armed struggle against colonizers on the African continent, Africans have resisted colonialism, capitalism, and imperialism from the very first moment Europeans set foot on the shores of Africa.
Come smash the myth of the white savior delivering us from chattel slavery and learn about the hidden history of the African-led abolitionist movement and our continuous resistance to imperialist exploitation.
We saved ourselves. Reclaim this history and use it to struggle forward.
