The Black is Back! Coalition's leaders and founding members span the spectrum of black political voices, from elected officials, to civil rights veterans, nationalists, socialists, civil libertarians, community activists, political prisoners, journalists, hip hop artists, and radio personalities. In this age of Obama, the newly formed Coalition aims to bring back the tradition of resistance historically associated with Black communities around the world.
The political paralysis now being experienced by anti-war and other progressive movements stems from the lack of a Black-led, anti-imperial movement that would off-set the traps set by Obama’s so-called “post-racial” politics that facilitate the same oppressive militarist agenda well known during the Bush regime. Black is Back is not simply a slogan for the African Diaspora but for all progressive struggles which have historically benefited from Black-led movements.
