We spend this hour with legendary former political prisoner and civil rights icon, famed for her leadership and education work with the Black Panther Party – Ericka Huggins, who recently released a new book along with Stephen Shames: Comrade Sisters: Women of the Black Panther Party. “This stunning collection of historical photographs, complimented by contemporary conversations with women members of the Black Panther Party, reminds us that women were literally the heart of this new political approach to Black freedom.” That’s from the book’s forward by Angela Davis. We’ll discuss Ericka’s history with the Party, the assassination of her husband and child’s father, and how that led her to continue her political work while raising her child – including a portion of time when she was wrongly incarcerated.
