Assata Shakur in Cuba, Source: asha bandele and Delphine Fawandu / Delphine Fawandu

The first shot severed her median nerve, the second her clavicle. At trial, medical testimony proved it was impossible for Assata Shakur to have fired a weapon on or about 1:00 AM on May 2nd, 1973 in a case that was one of the worst incidences of unchecked police violence and brutality. The court transcripts and documentation by Shakur's attorney, Lennox Hinds in his 1978 work, Illusions of Justice, dispel any lingering doubts one might have.... Read more

I think about the defining journalism of Ida B. Wells most often when I find myself ensnared by the clickbait that makes up so much of the coverage about Black people and Black life in America. There's nothing wrong with the escapism of that writing. We need the respite, Lord knows. But we also need-and deserve-so much more.

We deserve the whole of our lives documented truthfully. We deserve to know the everyday of our stories, including the real and often hard on-the-ground stories, the ones that we want so badly to end, but the ones we will only be able to end if we know the truth and the power that comes in working together in the name of that truth, in the name of our deepest need for freedoms that have never been the regular feature of Black America's lives....

The New York Times is reporting that Fulton County Superior Court Judge Rachel Krause filed a written order on Monday, July 15 requesting that Judge Ural Glanville be removed from the case.

For the last 18 months, Glanville has supervised the very chaotic proceedings which have included some very intense witness questioning, an alleged attempt to hand Young Thug drugs in court, and a witness admitting he was high under oath.... Read more

It's been five years since the last Rondo Days celebration in 2018. Those jubilant celebrations showcased the best that the Rondo community, the Black community, had to offer-music, marching bands, healthcare tents, arts and crafts, and great food. They hold a significant place in our history and identity.

Although the festival was co-founded in 1983 by Marvin Anderson and the late Floyd G. Smaller, older St. Paulites remember the origin of the festival-the decimation of the economically vibrant Black community called Rondo, which was home to many Black businesses, homes, and landmarks such as Hallie Q....
