Sekou Abdullah Odinga grew up in Jamaica, Queens-New York in a family of 
nine.  He is a husband, father,  grandfather and great-grandfather.  He 
was inspired by the revolutionary principles of Malcolm X when he joined 
the Organization for Afro-American Unity, followed later by the Black 
Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army.  He is a Muslim, a citizen 
of the Republic of New Afrika and for thirty-three years was a U.S. held 
Political Prisoner of War.

In 2009, Sekou reached his mandatory release date for his federal 
conviction in connection to the Liberation of Assata Shakur - living in 
exile in Cuba - and  was "paroled" to the New York State prison 
system.  After five years, he won a parole hearing and was released on 
parole on November 25th, 2014 from the New York State sentence.
