George Jackson (August 21, 1971)

“George Jackson was originally convicted of a $70 gas station heist in his late teens and sentenced to an indeterminate sentence of one year to life. Because of his refusal to bend down and crawl on his knees, so to speak, he never again left the California prison system and was murdered by guards in the yard at San Quentin on August 21, 1971. By that time, George was a member of the Black Panther Party and a revolutionary hero to millions around the world. His book Soledad Brother is still in publication and is remarkable not only for its insights into Jackson’s life and thoughts but also for the emotionally charged writing it contains.”

Yusef Hawkins (August 23, 1989)
yusef-hawkins.jpg
Yusef Hawkins (also spelled as Yusuf Hawkins) was a 16-year-old African American youth who was shot to death on August 23, 1989 in Bensonhurst, a heavily Italian American working-class neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Hawkins and three friends were attacked by a crowd of 10 to 30 white youths, with at least seven of them wielding baseball bats. One, armed with a handgun, shot Hawkins twice in the chest, killing him.
“Now we have a black president, a black attorney general, a black governor. But institutionally we still have, as the president has said, structural inequality ineducation, in health care, in policing.” –Sewell Chan, The Death of Yusuf Hawkins, 20 Years Later, NY Times, August 21, 2009,http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/21/the-death-of-yusuf-hawkins-20-years-later/

On August 30, 1989, Zuss and other members of the Brooklyn CDD Affirmative Action Committee [of ALAA] joined a Day of Outrage to protest Hawkins’ murder; the NYPD blocked and attacked marchers at the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge (second image below). –Zuss: 1986-1989 — Confronting Racist Violence,http://bobzuss.wordpress.com/2007/06/01/october-29-1988-protest-against-racist-murder-in-staten-island/
