TODAY: 50th Anniversary Lumumba Commemoration
Friends of Congo (FOTC) and its supporters will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Congo's first elected Prime Minister, Patrice Emery Lumumba by showing films and holding discussions on his life and ideas.
FOTC will also join in solidarity with the family of Patrice Lumumba in calling for justice for the people of Congo. We appeal to all justice seeking people throughout the globe to join in this worldwide call in support of the Congolese people's quest for justice.
In the United States the anniversary falls on Monday, January 17, 2011, the same day as the official celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. Dr. King famously said, "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." We appeal to the disciples of Dr. King to join us in calling for justice in the Congo. Lumumba Film screenings are taking place on January 17th in the following locations:
Film & Discussion: Lumumba
Time: 5 - 7:30 PM
Location: Sankofa Books & Videos
2714 Georgia Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20001
