Black August was created by those who had the most to lose. It honors resistence against imperialism, white supremacy and oppression. The original intention of The Black Guerilla Family in 1979 when Black August was created to commemorate the sacrifices of Jonathan P. Jackson and George L. Jackson during the storming of the Marin County Courthouse to demand the liberation of the Soledad Brothers, Black political prisoners incarcerated by the American prison system. If those on the inside can risk it all to stand up for what they believe in, justice minded people can do the same, if not more.
