Brath was alongside the late Percy Sutton, Manhattan borough president as they hoisted a new street sign when the corner of 125th Street and 7th Avenue was renamed “African Liberation Square” in 1973.Brath was also the founder of the Patrice Lumumba Coalition, following in the footsteps of earlier Pan-African nationalist leaders in Harlem like Marcus Garvey and Carlos Cooks
