This week we are writing to the Mondo We Langa and Ed Poindexter, also know as the Nebraska 2– former Black Panthers framed for the bombing death of a cop in 1970.The Two were charged and convicted of the murder of an Omaha cop who died when a suitcase containing dynamite exploded in a North Omaha home on August 17, 1970. A second cop was also injured in the explosion.

Ed Poindexter and Mondo we Langa (formerly David Rice) were members of the Black Panther Party, and their case was, and continues to be, controversial. The Omaha Police withheld exculpatory evidence at trial. The two men had been targeted by the FBI’s COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program), that operated against and infiltrated anti-war and Civil Rights groups, including the Omaha Black Panthers. The US section of Amnesty International recognizes we Langa and Poindexter as political prisoners. The state’s parole board have recommended the men for release, but political leaders have not acted on these recommendations. For more information, visit n2pp.info

If, for whatever reason, you can’t make it to dinner, please take the time to write the Two a letter:
