Ajamu Baraka, Madelyn Hoffman, and Diane Moxley have a conversation that America needs to have, we hope that their efforts grow the peace movement.

Ajamu Baraka, who has been a peace activist for decades gives us a clear explanation of imperialism at the start. It is important that we are able to understand what imperialism is. The foreign policy of violence goes back to the moment European colonizers came here and committed genocide against the indigenous people that were already here.
