In 1969, 21 members of the New York State Chapter of the Black Panther Party were rounded up and indicted on multiple trumped up charges of violent acts and conspiracies. The membership of the NY 21, which included Afeni Shakur, the
mother of Tupac Shakur, is largely forgotten and unknown. Their legacy, however, reflected upon here in this special
reprinted edition of the original book, “Look For Me In The Whirlwind” which also includes new writings from veteran
Black Panthers Mumia Abu Jamal, Sekou Odinga and Dhoruba Bin Wahad. This book provides essential truths which
have remained largely hidden and is a must read for every social justice activist in general and every revolutionary
New Afrikan & Black Liberation freedom fighter in particular, in our continuing struggle for Independence, Liberation,
Self-Respect, Self-Defense and Self-Determination in Amerikkka.
