On August 21, 1987, Imari Obadele, president of Republic of New Afrika (RNA), at the urging of Dorothy Benton Lewis, leader of the Black Reparations Commission, issues a call to come to Washington, D.C. to discuss, among other things, development of a campaign for reparations.
Five organizing meetings are held from September 1987 until April 1989. Vincent Godwin (now Kalonji Olusegun) chairs the meetings representing the convening organization, the Foreign Affairs Task Force of the RNA.
