Dhoruba Bin-Wahad: State Repression and Imperialism

Former Black Panther Party organizer and political prisoner Dhoruba Bin-Wahad is an unapologetic radical. A target of the FBI’s COINTELPRO, Dhoruba was arrested in 1971 and spent 19 years of a life sentence in jail for a crime he did not commit. Dhoruba  argues that real change comes from dissent outside of the political system. Recognizing historic stuggles against social injustice, Dhoruba connects the US role as an empire abroad with state repression, often in the form of laws, inside the US.
