The Street sweeper: Black Hammer Crew Cleans Up the Lou

Black Hammer are hosting a Community Clean Up in the St. Louis region, to help beautify the community. The cleanup will allow residents and local businesses to feel that they can positively impact their neighborhood by simply picking up trash. It will also reassure other members of the community that they are cared for and that the spaces they live, attend school, play and work in are important.This community clean up will also help show the poor and working class community that they can positively influence their environment by organizing and working together.  We’ve already begun meeting to decide which area would benefit most from our first cleanup.

When Pigs Lie: Murder of Eric Logan Sparks Fiya of African Resistance

South Bend, IN–Early morning Sunday, June 16 2019, Father’s Day, South Bend pig Sgt. Ryan O’neil murdered 54-year-old African Eric Logan in the parking lot of an apartment complex as Logan left his mother’s home. According to the pigs, Logan burglarized six cars before O’neil, a 19-year veteran of the occupying force, approached him. O’neil claims he shot Logan because the African approached him with a knife and ignored the pig’s orders to drop it. , O’neil tried to say that once he shot Logan in the abdomen, he immediately threw the knife at pig O’neil, striking him on his elbow. This prompted O’neil to fire again, missing Logan and striking a vehicle. Two shots were fired: one striking Logan, the other missing him.

Proper-Gander; Looking Between the Lines and the Lies of white Media

Proper Gander looking between the lines and the lies of white media.

Is it just pure coincidence that captain amerikkka’s weapon is a shield and the USA is always lying about acting in self defense in all its military endeavors? Ya ever notice how many movies after the Ferguson uprisings feature Black pigs? How about the fact that every movie depiction of ancient African and Indigenous people shows them as wild savages? These are the kind of undertones that we bring to the forefront in the web show: Proper-Gander.

We created this web series with the understanding that media is a tool of white power to brainwash the masses of African and Indigenous people with values and ideas that discourage us from fighting back. With proper political education mixed in with some knowledge of psychology and symbolism, we can break down the ideas that are put forward in white power media and expose how they plant them in our heads on some ole’ insception type shit.

 Living in the Imperialist heart of the world, the US of A, everywhere we look there is some cracker bullshit they tryna shove down our throats. That is why we have so many neocolonial sellouts out here steppin and fetchin. Anyone watching our show will be equipped to see through the BS with clarity of mind and KNOW the US and the other Colonial nations are the enemy of African and Indigenous people abroad. We are effectively planting the seeds for Revolutionary Cadre to bloom.

#ProtectOurGirls; Predatory State Protects Predators

White power has always protected rapists and predators.That is because it is a system built on theft, pillaging, rape, and exploitations. It is a system that must protect predators, because it is a predatory system. A system built by predators for predators. White power is a  predatory system build on the exploitation of the working class colonized masses.

Imagine picking up your daughters for from your white ex wife’s house, only to find out that your  children have been sending inappropriate videos to their step father. This was the horrifying experience of one black father in early April 2019.

These Limp Wrists Shoot; Black Hammer Arms GSNA

The power of Black Hammer lies within the people. PERIODT! We’re on mission to build Black power and it starts with the people. Black Hammer struggles to educate, discipline and spark the collective with POWER. We do this for all African and colonized people under the boot of wyt power. This is why Black Hammer is creating our own gun club!

 Our gun club is focused primarily on the GSNA (Gender and Sexually Non-Conforming African) members of the community. They have been affected by systematic violence that only the community can protect against. The Black Hammer Gun Club seeks to offer all African and colonized people this protection. History teaches us that true freedom has always been determined by the armed and oppressed. The beauty of the Black Hammer organization is based on this belief.

 When the Panthers stormed the Assembly Chamber of Sacramento in the wild summer of 1967 the world watched this display of black defiance. This moment became engraved in history. It taught us that the system shakes when we use discipline and act inside our rights to defend ourselves. We cannot expect help let alone true aid from the porky pig police. They serve as the guards of the system. They brutalize us yet they’re supposed to be “keepers of the peace.” For that reason, Black Hammer desires to arm and train the people in self-defense. Self-defense not only teaches one how to fight, it also teaches one how to preserve their lives and freedom. When Black Hammer was formed it’s founding ideal was the people’s freedom through the people’s armed might and power.

 We have a right to defend ourselves!

 Black Power!

 

 

The Peoples Struggle in the Slums.

 

South Bend, IN – BLVD Capital Investments, the firm owning Miami Hills Apartments, is an enemy of it’s poor and working class Black residents. Local activists and organizers affiliated with a new local movement called “Fix It Forward” came to our people’s defense, taking pics of the conditions that our people have been forced to live in. Nearly 140 families live in this slump where there are no working showers, leaking pipes, mice infestations, mushrooms growing through the cracks of walls, and untreated mold spreading throughout the guts of the complex.  

Organizers notified the property management company who clearly dgaf! They even offered to volunteer their skills and labor in order to fix the apartments! Still no response, the organizers turned to a local news station ABC57 and the acting Council member, Jake Teska, to make the public aware of the situation.

Because of the people’s public outrage, the property management company was forced to respond. Activists called a press conference so that the owners could address the conditions. It was reported by local newspaper The South Bend Tribune that 6 apartment units inspected by a city code enforcement inspector, all failed inspections with one apartment condemned. 

Because of the outrage of our people, the property management company began making “repairs”, however it was discovered that  the contractors hired to paint the buildings were covering untreated mold with paint. Organizers then took the struggle to social media, where they have 2300 followers in their Fix It Forward Facebook group, to inform our people about these acts of genocide.  

The organizers are forming a tenant association and drafting a set of demands for residents to provide to the owner. Black Hammer salutes the members of Fix It Forward as they fight for the human right to safe and affordable housing for working class masses! It is through the power of the organized masses that we can overturn our colonial conditions. 

Forward the African Revolution! 

Black Hammer is an organization focused on building Black Power. Under the leadership of the African proletariat, our mission is to use our collective building power to strengthen all sectors of the African Nation. Currently, our physical and intellectual labor is being coerced to build for the capitalist white colonial state, but it can be redirected to a noble cause. We will organize our labor to be of service to our people. Our symbol, the Black Hammer represents breaking the chains of imperialism and building a sustainable future for all African people worldwide.

Black Hammer Book Club, reading the words of our ancestors.

The Black Hammer’ Revolutionary Book Club took on the task of making radical political education accessible to the masses of Africans via the Black Hammer Facebook page. Every Sunday morning at 11:00 am EST we cover certain sections of books, articles, or other works. The first book assigned was Jamil Al-Amin’s (H Rap Brown) Classic work Die Nigga Die. The book is a provocative, vulgar, raw, and uncut read . H Rap Brown wrote the book  like he’s speaking on any street corner in any hood in America in a language that anyone can comprehend. This book goes into colorism, capitalism, imperialism, tribalism and so many other situations in such a simplistic way for the masses to digest. This book was an easy introduction for attendees who are new to political life. Many participants testified how informative the read was for them. Africans from all over the African  Diaspora tune into our discussions. Participants have the opportunity to call and join the live discussion or they can comment online. We strive to make it as interactive as possible and we have a lot of great commentary. Our next book Is Assata : An Autobiography by Assata Shakur. Our social media team galvanized the people into joining the book club. We’ve only been meeting for a few weeks now and each session has had over a thousand viewers from the day of the live meeting. The Book Club motivated viewers to join the Black hammer organization and sparked a sharp increase in followers to the organization’s page. It’s been a great start and it’s only up from here! Black Power!

Dancing in the Flames of the Revolution!

This summer Black Hammer will be introducing Kucheza Moto, a weekly dance class right here in the city of Hotlanta! Kucheza Moto means dancing flame in Swahili!

Led by Chief Dia, the Kucheza Moto weekly dance class will be for young Black children, teenagers, and adults to dance and perform; where we won’t waste our time tryna’ conform to what mainstream media has deemed to be the so called “standard” of dance,   Like ballet for instance .

 No shade to our brothers and sisters who are classically trained but what we can’t deny is that many Black children, teenagers, and adults are made to feel less than  just because they might not know how to properly point their toes or be able to stretch from here to beyond heaven!

 We provide a platform for the poor and working class Black parents who see the gifts their babies possess but cannot afford to pay for these expensive ass ballet classes. And just like every other white dominated but BLACK created space, we don’t get to see reflections of ourselves within professionalized dance arenas. Shout out to the incomparable brilliant Choreographer, dancer, and producer Alvin Ailey, rest in power!

The Kucheza Moto weekly dance class will fuel the natural passion and talents of dance within the Black community, unhindered and unapologetically BLACK to manifest into dance forms that are reflective of US!  We’re talking about African, Hip Hop, Twerk, and Contemporary dance styles. We taking it back to the Motherland!

The Kucheza Moto dance class will also serve as one of Black Hammer’s revenue streams to make sure the organization can sustain itself. The class will be taught in beginner and advanced sessions, the beginner session at $20 and the advanced session at $25. 

Chief Dia and the Kucheza Moto committee are working diligently to secure a venue and launch date so keep your eyes open to find out more details! For more information and updates follow us on social media.

Get ready to dance in the flames of revolution!

Black Power!

Kucheza Moto’s Mission

 

The mission of the Kucheza Moto weekly dance class is to validate and cultivate the talents of dance and performance within Black children, teenagers, and adults centered around revolutionary culture; to instill within them that there is no standard of dance that they must achieve in order to perform on a professional level.
