Founded in 2017, Black Socialists of America (BSA) is a coalition of anticapitalist, internationalist Black Americans who believe in the core principles of Socialism as defined by Karl Marx (see here).
We are a nonsectarian, "Scientific Socialist" organization made up of people who identify as many different things under the “Hard Left” umbrella, however we do not support egoists or insurrectionists, nor do we support highly centralized leadership or State Capitalism (see here).
We are Black Americans who are aware that we’ve been victimized, but refuse to be victims.
We are Black Americans who experience racism, but realize that race is a social construct.
We are Black Americans who fight for our own, but in a greater fight for humanity.
