Don't make any plans for this coming Tuesday, August 5th from 7 to 9 because it's time you came to dinner. Fill your belly with the finest stuff your local Anarchist Black Cross has to offer. Fill your heart and mind on history and updates from our Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War and the movements for which they fought and continue to fight. Fill those prison mail boxes with love and solidarity!

This week we're focusing on Dr. Mutulu Shakur, a lifelong activist in the New Afrikan (Black) Independence Movement and a Doctor of Acupuncture. Dr. Shakur was co-founder of the Republic of New Afrika (1968) as well as the Black Acupuncture Advisory Association of America and was one of the pioneers in using acupuncture in the treatment of substance abuse. He also founded the Islamic Young Men's Movement, a youth prisoner organization and was a key organizer in the historic gang truce between the Bloods and the Crips at Lompoc Penitentiary. Dr. Shakur was sentenced to 60 years imprisonment for an alleged conspiracy by the Black Liberation Army/New Afrikan Freedom Fighters against the U.S. government.

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 POW or group of prisoners as well as 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.
