Organization for Black Struggle

The Organization for Black Struggle (OBS) was founded in 1980 by activists, students, union organizers, and other community members in order to fill a vacuum left by the assaults on the Black Power Movement. Its vision is to contribute to the creation of a society free of all forms of exploitation and oppression. OBS aims to build a movement that fights for political empowerment, economic justice, and the cultural dignity of the African-American community, especially the Black working class.

A 2015 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported OBS’s People’s Movement Assembly work. The assemblies are a means of allowing people to directly exercise their power and practice democracy.
