Chicago, August 24: Smash White Supremacy Chi – Organizing Meeting

Hosted by Chicago Workers World Party

Jesse White Community Center and Field House, 412 West Chicago Avenue, Chicago

Endorsed by: Anakayan Chicago, Black Lives Matter Chicago, Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, Trans Liberation Collective, Workers World Party Chicago

Freedom fighters in Charlottesville & Durham have inspired people across the country to take action against white supremacist monuments. We are in solidarity with R3 Against White Supremacy in Bronzeville and the growing momentum to remove the fascist Balbo Monument.

Confederate Monument in Oak Woods Cemetary in Hyde Park was built during the Jim Crow era to reinforce racism. It goes far beyond commemorating the 4,000 dead soldiers buried there – it glorifies the Confederacy.

Chicago-born Emmett Till was tortured and lynched by whites in 1955, at age 14. The only memorial to him here is the honorary Emmett Till Rd (71st St), which borders Oak Woods Cemetary.

Smash White Supremacy – Chicago is a coalition of anti-racist individuals and organizations working for the removal of Confederate Monument. We also demand an Emmett Till Memorial in Chicago. Join us!

HONOR EMMETT TILL, NOT SLAVERY!
