"Ajamu Baraka is a powerful, eloquent spokesperson for the transformative, radical agenda whose time has come - an agenda of economic, social, racial, gender, climate, indigenous and immigrant justice”, Jill Stein, GP Presidential Candidate.
Despite the oppression and the unfair treatment given to Blacks living in “The Land of the Free”, some of them are successfully dealing with the issues of racism, injustice, and police brutalities to give African-Americans face uplift.
One of such outstanding Blacks is Ajamu Baraka, who doubles as a human rights activist. He is a man, who has fought for Black freedom and is widely known for his radical organizational prowess. It was, therefore, no mistake when the Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein offered her vice-presidential bid to the human rights scholar and activist, Ajamu Baraka.
In an agitated voice, the doctor turned politician said, “I am honored and excited to announce that my running mate in the 2016 presidential election will be Ajamu Baraka, activist, writer, intellectual and organizer with a powerful voice, vision, and lifelong commitment to building the true political revolution.”
Jill Stein will be running for the Presidency alongside Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in this year’s general elections.
A little research on the Black hero reveals that Ajamu Baraka is an internationally recognized human rights activist, organizer, and geopolitical analyst. He directed the US Human Rights Network (until 2011) and was a vibrant Coordinator of the U.S. based “Black Left Unity Network’s” Committee on International Affairs.
In addition to his credentials, Baraka has served on the boards of various national and international human rights organizations, including Amnesty International (USA) and the National Center for Human Rights Education. He has also worked for of the Center for Constitutional Rights, Africa Action, Latin American Caribbean Community Center, Diaspora Afrique, and the Mississippi Workers’ Center for Human Rights.
BlackMatters sends sincere congratulations to Mr. Ajamu on his appointment. We are also glad to know that Black people, at last, have a candidate, as Jill Stein is not indifferent to their problems.
