The Stono Institute for Democracy, Justice and Security (SIDJS) is the first human rights institution and think tank founded by African-Americans aimed at combatting existential threats—domestic and international—to Black life and liberty including, but not limited to, systematic and structural racial discrimination, violent white extremism and deadly police violence and it’s antecedents. SIDJS is named in honor of the enslaved African freedom fighters that conducted the Stono River Rebellion of 1739 against British authorities and slavocrats in colonial South Carolina. The Stono Rebellion was led by an enslaved Angolan warrior named “Jemmy.” It was largest and most successful “slave revolt” against British slavery and domination. It resulted in a ten year moratorium on the international slave trade into South Carolina and helped set the stage for the American Revolution (1775-1783). The site where the Stono Rebellion began was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974.

Indict the U​S in the UN for systemic racial discrimination & killing African-Americans!

Indict the Trump Administration & the U.S. government in the United Nations for systemic racial discrimination & killing African-Americans                  Fight With Us, please donate here: https://stonoinstitute.com/donate/ The U.S. government has demonstrated that it is unwilling and unable to protect African-Americans from deadly police violence and violent white extremism nor deliver justice when we are viciously massacred. George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery were murdered by deadly police violence and violent white extremist vigilantism, respectively. Thousands of African-American men and women, particularly youth, have been mercilessly killed by police and armed white bands.  America's pathology of violence against Black Americans has created existential threats to Black life and liberty including but not limited to systematic and structural racial discrimination, violent white extremism, extra-judicial killings and deadly police violence and it’s antecedents. The Trump Administration is encouraging racial division, deadly police violence and white vigilante justice against African-Americans and their allies. The American judiciary has summarily failed to protect black lives and the Congress is largely impotent. Hence, as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. indicated, it is time to indict the United States at the global level in the United Nations for violating the fundamental human rights of Black Americans. *Please click here to make a donation and learn more about the SIFJS: https://stonoinstitute.com/donate/ Stono Institute for Freedom, Justice and Security (SIFJS):    https://stonoinstitute.com                                                                                  Connect with us on Twitter @StonoInstitute
