The Republic of New Afrika was a Social Movement that has been almost buried in history. It was created in 1969 and its objective was to create an independent black republic out of the southern United States of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, which is where most Black people are located in America. This is also where most of the slaves once inhabited the land and made countless slave owners rich due to their work. These states would become a new separate country with reparations from slavery, current racism, and abuse and its own government and military called the “Black Legion”. New Afrika’s Flag is inspired by Marcus Garvey and The UNIA Flag.
The RNA also gave people of African Descent the option to be a Citizen, since they were stolen and brought here they didn’t have a choice initially. New Afrika would be self-sufficient and create solidarity for themselves and help rebuild the Continent of Africa.
The RNA was Lead by like Robert F. Williams, Milton Henry, Betty Shabazz, and used a lot of the principles of Malcolm X’s Philosophies and teachings. The RNA was making progress and of course the FBI decided to take action calling them a “Danger” and used the infamous COINTELPRO to carry-out violent attacks, raid meetings, and imprison many of its leaders causing it to fail and America has done a great job of hiding this prominent movement in History in hopes to keep this info away from the current and future generations. The RNA was a true revolutionary movement.
