Remembering Assata Shakur

I first learned about Assata Shakur while in Black Studies at Brown University. Before that, I had no idea such a woman existed because like much of our history, she has been erased. Personally, I feel a great sense of gratitude to her for the sacrifices she has made. Assata has been and continues to be an advocate for revolutionary change and self-determination for all oppressed people.

Today, she has been labeled a terrorist and is the first woman to be placed on the FBI’s most wanted list. I believe her autobiography, An Autobiography by Assata Shakur, is a must read.

Take a look at this video which includes a recording of Assata reading an open letter telling her story and describing her views. And as always please like, post, comment, and share…
