Birthday Shout Out!: Assata Shukur

Assasta Shakur aka JoAnne Deborah Byron
July 16, 1947
former Black Panther, activist

I am an ex political prisoner, and I have been living in exile in Cuba since 1984. I have been a political activist most of my life, and although the U.S. government has done everything in its power to criminalize me, I am not a criminal, nor have I ever been one.
