The Saturday Free School for Philosophy & Black Liberation
The Saturday Free School recognizes the failure of universities to create knowledge for the people. We see a need for spaces outside these institutions which can create knowledge that is scientific and tied to revolutionary practice.
We meet every Saturday to discuss social movements, politics, and the path ahead for humanity. We are grounded in the thinking and practice of figures such as James Baldwin, W.E.B. Du Bois and Martin Luther King Jr. We have studied the works of revolutionaries such as Fidel Castro, Angela Davis, Howard Thurman, Huey P Newton, Lenin, Kwame Nkrumah, Henry Winston, Frantz Fanon, among others.
We organize events, symposiums and celebrations for the political education of the people of Philadelphia.
No previous study or reading proficiency is required. All who practice knowledge for liberation are welcome.
Due to Covid-19, in April 2020 we moved to an online livestream discussion format.
Livestream Discussion online every Saturday at 10AM EST
In Person (currently invite-only) - Every Saturday at 9:30AM The Church of the Advocate, 1801 Diamond Street, Philadelphia 19121
