The Oakland Freedom Summer Project, July 9-29, 2012, is a key phase of the renovation of the Uhuru House African community center in East Oakland.
The Uhuru House represents more than 30 years of campaigns led by the Black Power Movement to win African community control of the economy, housing, health care, education and police.
During the Oakland Freedom Summer Project Uhuru Movement organizers bring together the resources, skills and materials to complete the renovation of the Uhuru House in East Oakland.
The renovated Uhuru House will embody the principle of organizational self-reliance and economic development by housing the Uhuru Jiko (Kitchen) and Akwaaba (Welcome) Hall.
The Uhuru House will be a dynamic hub of political activity for the African population of the Bay Area and surrounding region.
The OFSP will be happening from July 9-29.
