Tonight we will be discuss Assata Shakur and her legacy of activism, her perserverance, her strength and why it is important that we keep telling her story in the face of the lies of the US government. Our co-host, Sis. Ameejill had a chance to meet Assata in 1997 while she was in Cuba for the Venceremos Brigade and the 14th International Youth & Student Festival. Assata Shakur gave her last public speech not long after a 1 million dollar bounty was placed on her head by the US government. May Assata Shakur continue to live free from the oppression of the United States.
