LOOKING AHEAD - AUGUST EVENTS at REVOLUTION BOOKS
August 11, Saturday time (TBA)
The Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic is the oldest and largest African-American parade in the United States. The thousands attending the Bud Billiken Parade need to hear this message:
"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."
(Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA: BAsics1:13)
They need to see a core of people who refuse to live with the world as it is. They need to learn about this leader who has charted a revolutionary path to a radically different and far better world. Everybody has something to contribute. Be part of making this happen. Contingent sponsored by Revolution Books. Meet up at 39th and MLK Drive. Call 773-489-0930 for contingent location and time for arrival.
