Black Hammer is a revolutionary organization whose ultimate goal is to achieve freedom for Colonized people under the leadership of the international colonized poor and working class. Their mission statement says that “Under the leadership of the Colonized proletariat, our mission is to use our collective building power to strengthen all sectors of the Colonized Nation.” Their symbol, the Black Hammer, represents breaking the chains of oppression and building a sustainable future for all colonized people worldwide.


Black Hammer was founded on February 4th, 2019, by Commander-in-Chief, Gazi Kodzo, Diakesse Lungisani, Mouhamadou Diagne, Nyah Akrele, Robert Quiñones, Gislaine Lopez, and Jonathon Mack. Several of the founders, including, Gazi himself, had previously been members of the African People’s Socialist Party, The New Black Panther Party and Black Lives Matter, but had split after Gazi, then Secretary General[1], formally separated from APSP. According to personal accounts from Gazi, he decided to leave his old position upon learning of the ongoing history of abuses carried out by its Chairman, Omali Yeshitela.[2]

Gazi, an African fundamentalist, and communist organizer, took much of the political foundation for which he would use to build Black Hammer from the work of Marcus Garvey, especially the UNIA (Universal Negro Improvement Association). He was born in June 23, 1990, in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, the city where he would eventually found Black Hammer.[3] The entirety of Gazi’s political work before founding Black Hammer revolved around anti-colonialism, or the political and economic project of dismantling the global systems of colonialism. Gazi had begun sharpening his political outlook and practice in his early twenties, founding his own prison abolition organization, and becoming highly involved in political commentary on Youtube. At one point, he would become Secretary General for the African People’s Socialist Party, however he formally separated in 2018.[4] Black Hammer itself was forged after nearly a decade of Gazi’s firm commitment to sharpen the anti-colonial struggle, both within himself, and within the many organizations he united with.

Black Hammer has since grown to become an international organization with Chapters in Nigeria, Puerto Rico, The Philippines and the United Kingdom.

The organization as a whole is militantly anti-colonial, and vocally defends the rights of any and all nations which have suffered under colonial regimes, such as they did for the African nation of Mali[5]. In a press statement, Black Hammer criticized Prime Minister, Boubou Cissé, as a neocolonial puppet to the French government.
