Events and conferences are being organized in Philadelphia, USA and Bengaluru, India to commemorate the 75th year of India's independence. These events explore the legacy of revolutionary leaders and thinkers of the Indian struggle and the Black freedom movement, and the deep shared history and ideas that unite two of the most important revolutionary struggles in modern history.

The Year is organized by members of the Saturday Free School for Philosophy & Black Liberation, based in the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia, and the Gandhi Global Family.
