Saturday Free School for Philosophy and Black Liberation

By Saturday Free School
Our weekly analysis of philosophy, history and current events through the life and works of W.E.B. Du Bois, James Baldwin, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Saturday Free School is committed to the political and ideological education of the people. In this regard we are more than a school, we are an instrument of the people. We seek ideological clarity, theoretical sophistication and a practice of principled unity. We investigate the logics of social movements, and methods of radical and revolutionary organizing.
