                highlighted by special guest speakers Sekou Odinga and
                Lynne Stewart, both
                recently released freedom fighters! Odinga, a veteran of
                the Black Panther
                Party and the Black Liberation Army, endured 33 years in
                the NY prison system.
                Stewart, a brave and much beloved people’s lawyer,
                nearly died in prison from
                breast cancer, but was released as a consequence of a
                mass medically
                compassionate release campaign.</div>

                reached this milestone with a consistency of effort that
                our freedom fighters’
                and their families appreciate with our 20<sup>th</sup>
                anniversary dinner
                tribute, we must underscore that the challenge of our
                commitment is a
                consequence of the insidious nature of this issue,”
                explained a guardedly
                passionate Dequi Kioni-Sadiki, the organization’s chair.</div>
              <div style="text-indent:36pt">“It is underscored by the
                fact
                that the overwhelmingly majority of our freedom
                fighters, after 20, 30, and 40
                years, are still in captivity,” she finished.</div>
              <div style="text-indent:36pt">Zayid Muhammad, the

              <div style="text-indent:36pt">“20 years of solid
                consistent
                work is one thing,” he said.</div>
              <div style="text-indent:36pt">“But our freedom fighters
                enduring over 800 years of captivity, over 800 years of
                captivity, is something
                else.</div>
              <div style="text-indent:36pt">“We continue to insist that
                our
                freedom fighters are Malcolm’s tragically still ‘hidden
                legacy’ and that it is
                time that this government’s dirty political prisoner
                secret be put on blast
                before the world,” he finished pointedly.</div>
              <div style="text-indent:36pt">Two powerful young artists
