I am emailing you to announce the publication of a book titled We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America.
The publisher is PM Press. The Editors are Elizabeth Betita Martinez, Matt Meyer and Mandy Carter. Alice Walker and Sonia Sanchez wrote Afterwords. Cornel West wrote the Foreword.
 
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Alejandra Alatriz, Dan Berger, Karl Bessinger, Anne Braden, Marilyn Buck, Bill Fletcher, Vincent Harding, Fred Ho, Sarah Hussein, Ibrahim Ramey, Bayard Rustin, Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons, Conrad Worrill, and others contributed Chapters. Among the historic texts included in the book is a timely dialogue between Dr. Martin Luther King, Robert F. Williams, Dave Dellinger, and Dorothy Day.
 
Matt Meyer and Dan Berger edited a 5-year old interview by me, which is included as a chapter titled The Pan-Africanization of Black Power: True History, Coalition-building and the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party.

I am inviting all of my Co-workers, Friends and Family in the DC Metro Area to join me, Mandy, Matt, the PM Press staff, and others at a Party to launch this book on
Monday, January 21, 2013
6:00pm - 8:00pm
St. Stephen's Church
1525 Newton Street NW
Washington, DC
 
This event is part of the annual celebration of Martin Luther King Day. It is also organized in protest against Obama’s Inauguration. Erik Todd Dellums, Congressman Ron Dellum’s son, will present a dramatic reading as Bayard Rustin (from a never-before-published speech in the book). Additional presentations will be made by co-editors Mandy Carter (co-founder of the National Black Justice Coalition) and Matt Meyer (convener of the War Resisters International Africa Working Group). I have been invited to make a few brief remarks..
 
Stay Strong!
