Overview: Challenging the Time  Warp
Forty-one years ago, in May of 1972 in the city of St. Petersburg, Florida, we began the extraordinary journey that is being celebrated with the Sixth Congress of the African People’s Socialist Party. Fittingly, this journey began during the process of building for the first African Liberation Day mobilization in Washington, D.C. held on May 27 of that year. At various times during our history we have declared the significance of building the African People’s Socialist Party. At no time has the existence of our Party been more significant and urgently needed than it is today. Not only is building the Party a crucial task of our organization and our members, it is also
the
 fundamental task of the African Revolution at this critical historical juncture. Our journey was begun by a mere handful of us at a time when U.S. imperialism was gloating about its victory over many of the forces of liberation within current U.S. borders and around the world. Our Party was founded in the wake of a crushing military defeat of the African Revolution in Africa, within the U.S. and worldwide. When our Party was formed the U.S. government was confident its years-long efforts to crush our struggle for liberation had been successful. In the latter part of the 1960s the U.S. unleashed a bloody wave of political repression that left some of our most outstanding leaders imprisoned, overthrown or murdered and our most significant organizations enfeebled or destroyed. However, even as an era of struggle was being brutally brought to a close and the dreams of freedom and happiness of millions of our people were being subordinated to the whims of imperialism, another era was being born with the founding of our Party.
