Mukasa Speaks: Why White People Were Kicked Out Of Sncc says
Join us on Tuesday, February 21st at 6pm at Smith Memorial Student Union for a talk featuring the legendary revolutionary African elder - Mukasa Dada (formerly Willie Ricks). Brother Mukasa will be discussing why white organizers were asked to leave the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1966 and why this is still a critical question for African organizing today.

Mukasa Dada was a frontline organizer for SNCC during the iconic "March against Fear" in Mississippi where the Black Power movement was born in 1966. Mukasa was responsible for the dangerous task of heading out alone ahead of the march to prepare Africans in rural Southern towns to back the 'Black Power' line. Mukasa pushed Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) to debut the now famous 'Black Power' slogan during that march. Since then, Mukasa has organized for the All-African People's Revolutionary Party (AAPRP) and the worldwide Pan-African movement.
