Original Source: Amsterdam News

Veteran political strategist, educator and organizer Viola Plummer is 80 years young! A birthday celebration was held at the historic landmark cultural institution Sistas’ Place, founded in 1995 by the December 12th Movement and which features live jazz with A-list musicians. Plummer, elated and energetic, was surrounded by friends, peers and family, who honored her decades-long contribution to the freedom journey of African people in the United States and the Pan-African liberation support on the continent.

As chairperson of the December 12th Movement, Plummer has been at the forefront of local, national and international action on the issues leading toward mass mobilization on racism, self-determination, reparations, quality health care, housing, criminal justice and education. The movement held massive dynamic street rallies marches, including the Day of Outrage, the Million Youth March in partnership with the late Dr. Khalid Muhammad and the first Millions for Reparations rally in Washington, D.C.

    Ms. Plummer, I did not have the chance to meet you personally, however, my mentor, Sybil A. Holmes, spoke very highly of you and told me before she passed, that if I ever needed assistance, I should come to you in her name.
    So, on that note, I am wishing you a very, very Happy Birthday and wishing you many, many more.
