The 50th Anniversary of the March/Farce on Washington w Ajamu Baraka

Jared Ball

Ajamu Baraka joined us to discuss his recent essay lamenting the participation of Barack Obama at this week’s 50th Anniversary March on Washington.  Baraka describes Obama as a “negation” of the liberation movement and a false “symbol” that fraudulently attempts to unite a freedom movement with an anti-Black and capitalist state.

Ajamu Baraka is a human rights defender whose experience spans three decades of domestic and international education and activism.  Baraka is a veteran grassroots organizer whose roots are in the Black Liberation Movement, anti-apartheid and Central American solidarity struggles.  He can be found online at ajamubaraka.com.

  1. Malcolm’s critique does still remain cogently apropos. A most interesting and informative take on the bamboozling mythologizing of the March on Washington ’63 & a current perspective on the marginal space affording radical vision for progress. The bourgeois status quo must not be accepted as inevitable, lest all hope for radical transformation be lost.
