From Struggle to Militant: A Revolutionary Story Ep. 9 Kerbie Joseph

Music: “Home” by Jillesque of Condina Records

In episode 9 of From Struggle to  Militant: A Revolutionary Story, we interview Kerbie Joseph. Kerbie is a first generation Haitian woman from Brooklyn, NY and a leading member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation.  Kerbie has been organizing since the age of 19 in NYC against police brutality, mass incarceration, housing insecurity and LGBTQ oppression. Kerbie has organized and led the Stop The Cops unity march from the Bronx to Harlem, in solidarity for Trayvon Martin, Ramarley Graham and all police brutality victims. She was the lead organizer in the Justice for Akai Gurley Family campaign and works with many of the police brutality families in NYC. This work has led to a guilty verdict by a jury against the police officer responsible for Akai Gurley’s murder in 2014 and a street being named in Akai’s honor in the neighborhood he was killed by the NYPD in East New York on November 20th, 2021.
