Rally to Defend the Morales-Shakur Center of CCNY
I gave a fiery address to the students and faculty assembled to protest the summary shutdown of the center. I began by stating that “I taught Assata Shakur ….” When I finished there was much enthusiastic applause. Many of the points I made can be found on my website under the free u. class on Assata I taught this summer in Marcus Garvey Park, at which time Schomburg Director Khalil Gibran Muhammad interviewed me as a mayoral candidate. No other mayoral candidate spoke today.
