Description
The lives and words of Malcolm X, and the Black Panthers, and the Puerto Rican Independentistas are the framework for the histories of Geronimo Pratt, Dylcia Pagan, Mumia Abu Jamal and Alejandrina Torres. The isolation, physical abuse and injustice endured by the young activists trapped by COINTELPRO twenty years ago make a mockery of United States human rights policies. With Assata Shakur and William Morales, they are powerful voices for justice and self-determination.
