Karega Hart died May 3 2014 in Oakland, CA., after a years-long battle with slowly worsening multiple sclerosis. He was 63. A tribute read by his granddaughter Ashli Hart at his memorial service noted, “While still in his teens, Karega became a lifelong fighter for African liberation, workers’ rights and power, women’s equality, reparations and socialism.”
“While deeply committed to the struggle for Black liberation, Karega taught us that the struggle for racial equality had to be tied to the class struggle,” said Millie Cleveland in a tribute from SEIU Local 1021, where Karega served for a decade as Education and Training Director.
