A4R offers white artists the opportunity to take responsibility for the parasitism of the gentrifying, colonial-capitalist art institutions and music industry that we benefit from by allowing us to use our creativity to forward the African revolution.

USM is an organization of white people created by and accountable to the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP). We organize in the white community for reparations to African people, taking a stance of material solidarity with the black working-class struggle for freedom that has been led by the APSP since 1972. USM is the mass organization of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, which has been organizing since 1976 for white community support of campaigns to stop the war on African people.

Deadline to Submit: July 31st
