“ 
The month of August gained special significance and importance in the BlacLiberation Movement beginning with courageous attempt by Jonathan Jackson to demand the freedom of political prisoners / prisoners of war which the 
 Soledad Brothers’ case were the center of 
attention 
” 
 
We call ourselves New Afrikan because of the degree of force breeding and miscegenation we as a people havesuffered, as well the cultural imperialism and the psychological plunder and rape of our affinity to Afrika, strippingaway our Afrikan language, art and world outlook. And national oppression, which in our efforts to combat, hascreated a national heritage rich in resistance based on the two ideals of integration and separation. Theseexperiences which have left us stripped of our Afrikanist perspective, and despite miscegenation and culturalimperialism, culminated into an Afrikan national heritage in the Diaspora, creating the  New Afrikan IndependenceMovement

The History of Black August Concept and Program 
On August 7, 1970
Jonathan Jackson, William Christmas, JamesMcClain, and Ruchell Magee were gunned down at the Marin CountyCourthouse. Ruchell Cinque Magee remains the sole survivor of that bidfor liberation; he also remains a POW at Folsom prison doing life.Though this rebellion was put down by gory pigs and their agents it wasinternalized within the hearts and minds of the people on the outside inthe larger prison as well as those in the concentration camps (prison),internalized in the same fashion as we honor other heroic AfricanFreedom Fighters, who sacrificed their lives for the people and theliberation.
On August 21, 1971,
 almost exactlya year following the slave rebellionat Marin County Courthouse, GeorgeL. Jackson (older brother of Jonathan Jackson as well as one of the Soledad Brothers) whosefreedom was the primary demand of the Marin rebellion, was assassinatedat San Quentin prison in an allegedescape put forth by prisonadministration and the state to cover its conspiracy. Comrade GeorgeJackson was a highly respected and purposely influential leader in theRevolutionary Prison Movement.Jackson was also very popular  beyond prison, not only because he was a Soledad Brother, but also because
of the book he authored appropriately entitled “Soledad Brother.”
