Tues (May 25th) – The Assata Shakur Story, Letter-Writing Dinner for Marilyn Buck, Sundiata Acoli, Mutulu Shakur, Sekou Odinga
What: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing Dinner
When: 7pm sharp, Tuesday, April 27th
Where: 885 Park Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (see below for directions)
The NYC Anarchist Black Cross collective is back at it, serving up amazing food and knowledge about our comrades behind bars. This week, we’ll be presenting the Assata Shakur story. We’ll talk about, celebrate and write to Marilyn Buck, Sundiata Acoli, Mutulu Shakur, and Sekou Odinga who are all serving time for charges connected to the successful 1979 prison break and escape of Assata Shakur (leader in both the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army).
All you need to bring is an appetite, but friends are welcome.
A NOTE ON THE LOCATION: With the eviction of the 1-2-3 community space, the NYC Anarchist Black Cross collective has gone mobile. This week, we are back in Bed-Stuy. Make sure you follow us on twitter or write to nycabc[at] riseup[dot]net to get on our mailing list so you don’t miss a single night.

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about a political prisoner or group of prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence.
