Turning Grief Into Strength; Oct. 12 Memorial Service in NOLA

HONORING HERMAN:  Tribute made to by US Congressmen Conyers, Richmond, and Scott  II  Mural and Banner in North Carolina  II  Mumia Abu-Jamal's Message for Herman's Memorial

Herman Wallace, RIP
Sunrise: October 13, 1941
Sunset: October 4, 2013

What an unbelievable, surreal, momentous, and historic week it has been with Herman's amazing release after 42 years, the State's vindictive last ditch attempt of a reindictment, and his passing. This, all in a period of days. His family and friends are still in a whirlwind.

Always larger than life, Herman leaves a huge hole in so many of our lives. Below is information about Herman's funeral service on Saturday and a benefit tomorrow to help the family pay for the service.

Long live Herman Wallace!
Free Albert Woodfox and all political prisoners!
Abolish Solitary Confinement!
