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.

Lil-Cnote:Free for another summer!

We have won Lil C-Note another summer, and the Cobb County judicial court and Judge Wayne Gannis are shaking in their boots!

On May 24th Black Hammer made the slave auction courts of Cobb county feel the heat! And we know they felt it. Our first clue was when they canceled the court date and then rescheduled for the same date a couple of hours later. They tried to confuse and discourage us from showing up and showing out.

That didn’t stop us though, we kept applying dat pressure! After three hours outside the courthouse, we were given word from an insider on the case that the judge was too nervous to even do his job! The attention of the masses and the media struck the judge with anxiety. They want to reschedule Lil C-Note’s court case to a place and time that the public won’t know about so they can try and judge this young boy in secret.

But we know it’s gonna be August 12th, and we’re gonna be there! This summer they’re gonna feel the Heat! We are also gonna be outside Cobb county magistrate court July 11th-12th (9am-12pm). Standing proudly In defense of our brother Lil C-Note and all the African children, men, women and gender non conforming folk who are brutalized and unjustly tried by the slave auction courts in the United Snakes of American every damn day.

 

What right does this judge, or the jury members or even the Cumberland mall have to judge this 12 year old? We say that they have none and that in fact, it is them who must be put on trial. We are putting them on day trial for attacking our community in service of an alien and colonial nation. We charge them with aggravated assault on our youth with the intent of using them for slave labor in their private prisons. We charge them with genocide!

We want all charges against Lil C-Note dropped because he is innocent! We want the pig officer to face consequences for brutalizing our young brother, and we want the Cumberland mall to pay reparations for the physical and emotional damages they caused Lil C.

Black Hammer is here

The Black Hamma is here!

On February 3, 2019, the Black Hammer Organization was introduced onto the scenes of the revolutionary struggle for African liberation.

The event was hosted at The Black Dot Cultural Center, located in Lithonia, GA! Started with a welcome by Diakiesse Lungisani and Gazi Kodzo, the launch party included many practical and inspiring presentations.

Comrades traveled from Massachusetts, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Florida, and upstate New York to guarantee the successful launch of The Black Hammer Organization. The launch was a success and marked the birth of an organization that truly represents the African working class!

The first presentation was given by HIV health Specialist Kasheena Washington! Working with Westcare Georgia, Miss Washington had been spreading awareness about HIV and its treatment in the black community for two years!

After this, the people heard a concise presentation by Comrade Raphael Myles, who has been in the fitness and health business for five years. The benefits he has experienced from being disciplined in diet, exercise, sexual restraint and positive perspective have made him determined to share his knowledge with the people!

The last presentation was given by international artist brother Cephas Bradley who is has been producing masterpieces since the age of 6, inspired by the world around him and the lessons that it teaches him about life under colonialism.

Through his keynote presentation, Chief Gazi Kodzo laid out why an organization such as Black Hammer is needed in this period where the revolutionary fever of our people is steadily on the rise! Comrade Thomas Williams traveled all the way from Brooklyn, NY to cater the event and the food was LIT!

The event marked a new beginning in a 400-year-old battle. It was the birth of an organization by African people for the liberation of poor and working-class Africans everywhere.

Black Power!

Forward to African Liberation!

Cumberland Mall is shook!

Cumberland Mall is shook!

On Saturday, March 16, Black Hammer brought the hammer down in one of the busiest malls operating in Cobb County, Georgia, the Cumberland Mall!

Saltine white Cumberland Mall where on October 6, 2018, our li’l brother, 12-year-old Atlanta rapper Lil C Note was brutalized by a pig for allegedly selling his mixtapes; and white nationalist Cobb County where in August 2017, a officer told a cave Becky, “Don’t worry, we only shoot black people!
