In November 2009 Dhoruba Bin-Wahad, a former leader of the Black Panther
Party, and member of the Black Liberation Army, was detained and deported
from the West Bank of occupied Palestine by Israeli authorities. He had
been invited to attend a conference on political detention by the
Palestinian Authority.
Dhoruba spent 19 years of a life sentence in jail for a crime he did not
commit. He was a target of the FBI’s COINTELPRO, was arrested in 1971 and
had his conviction overturned in 1990.
He will discuss historic and current struggles against social injustice
and state violence in the U.S. and in Palestine with a specific focus on
political prisoners and institutions that repress social movement
mobilization within communities fighting oppression.
Join a wide array of Twin Cities organizations to hear this powerful
speaker, who challenges conventional wisdom and inspires people to embrace
social change.
