Elaine Brown
Author, Prison Activist, Former Chairman of the Black Panther Party

TOPIC: "A Luta Continua: Human Rights and the Prison System"
"A Luta Continua," was the main motto of FRELIMO, the Mozambican revolutionary party, meaning, in the Portuguese, "The Struggle Continues."

Elaine Brown is a wonderful lecturer, activist and historian. She has written two books, her own memoir, " A Taste of Power" and "The Condemnation of Little B." In "The Condemnation of Little B," she meticulously documents and analyzes the case of Michael "Little B" Lewis who was sentenced to life in prison at the age of 14. Elaine puts Little B's case in the context of the 'tough on crime" movement, city politics and politicians and the inherent racist conditions which existed in Atlanta, and indeed exist in every city in America. She continues to work for the freedom of Michael Lewis in addition to other prisoner campaigns. Her memoir has been optioned for an HBO special.
