BLACK AUGUST ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
FUNDRAISER
Presented by Shaka At-thinnin

This evening the Black August Organizing Committee and the Prisoners of Conscience Committee (POCC) -- which produces the Block Report Radio Show on KPOO an KPFA Radio -- join together to raise funds in order to hold the 26th Annual Black August Benefit next August 2005. This evening’s program features two noted speakers: Fred Hampton Jr., Chairman of the Chicago Chapter of the POCC, and Tarika Lewis, the first woman to join the Black Panthers. Also on the program, the 40-minute, eye-opening documentary film, The Assassination of Fred Hampton, will be shown. And dinner will be served for a $5 donation. Every year, the Annual Black August Benefit commemorates political prisoners who have died in prison and acknowledges and aids those still being held captive. All year round, the Black August Organizing Committee works in communities to heal and strengthen them to stem the tide of youth falling victim to the prison industrial complex.
