The All African People’s Revolutionary Party invites the community to its third annual “Fourth of the Lie” program at Peninsula Park in north Portland on July 4 starting at 3 p.m. This year’s theme is a tribute to Kent Ford, the founder of the Portland Black Panther Party chapter. Conscious youth will perform with hip-hop contributions with other musical celebrations.

Fourth of the Lie events started in Sacramento in 2002 when A-APRP organizers there started a get-together that would counter “the hypocrisy of the capitalist system claiming July 4th as a day of freedom and justice.”

The local A-APRP chapter will provide barbeque dishes, both meat and non-meat. Attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish of their choosing.
