The Context of White Supremacy hosts our seventh and final study session on the autobiography of Assata Shakur. Formerly JoAnne Chesimard, Shakur was a committed member of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army, convicted of killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster, an escaped felon, the first woman ever listed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List, and a writer. She continues to be the focus of controversy as 60 faculty and staff members at Marquette University have signed a petition demanding that a mural depicting her likeness be reproduced. Last week’s session outlined Assata’s involvement with and criticisms of the Black Panther Party. She provided profound insight on how Whites exacerbated conflict between black people, which helped suppress counter-racist efforts. She detailed the frenzied pace of the late 60’s and early 70’s where violence, deceit, drugs and Racists smothered the environment and confounded one’s ability to make sense. Keep an eye out for the influence of Christianity.
