    As we have entered the final 90 days to the 2020 Election, Dr. Gin continues hosting a series of conversations creating a platform for our modern day leaders in the Civil Rights Movement to inform and inspire as we enter this dire time that will determine the future of our country, and our very lives.

    Jamal, along with Afeni Shakur, were a part of the Panther 21 in 1969. The trial eventually collapsed and the twenty-one members were acquitted of all 156 charges in 1971.

    In this historic and astounding conversation Jamal discusses what the Black Panthers truly stood for, dispelling misconceptions, and how the Black Panther Party Veterans are now mentoring the next generation.

    He also discusses his passionate views on the dire need for all people uniting VOTE for Biden and Harris in the 2020 election to to bring power to all people and end the terror of Trump.
