Join The Gist of Freedom tonight as we welcome Lenora Branch Fulani. 

Ms. Fulani has spent almost three decades fighting to end the two-party system and create a “viable, national, pro-socialist” party for those who feel ignored by the Democratic and Republican parties.  Fulani ran for the presidency in 1988 and 1992.

She grew up in Chester, PA and watched her father die because, she said, no ambulance would come to her poor, African-American neighborhood.  This, along with the firing of a gay choir director at her church, shaped her desire to address injustice.

A scholarship student at Long Island’s Hofstra University, she graduated in 1971 and then earned a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Teachers College and a Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the City University of New York, where she was much influenced by Dr. Fred Newman, who would serve as both a mentor and her campaign manager.  While a guest researcher at Rockefeller University, she joined Newman’s New York Institute for Social Therapy and Research and his New Alliance Party (NAP).
