Kuwasi Balagoon: A Soldier's Story


Manufacturer: Kersplebedeb

Product Information

Kuwasi Balagoon was a defendant in the Panther 21 case in the late sixties, and a member of the Black Liberation Army. Captured and convicted of various crimes against the State, he spent much of the 1970s in prison, escaping twice. After each escape, he went underground and resumed BLA activity. He was captured in December 1981, charged with participating in an armoured truck expropriation in West Nyack, New York, on October 21 of that year, an action in which two police officers and a money courier were killed. Convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, he died of pneumocystis carninii pneumonia, an AIDS-related illness, on December 13, 1986.

The first part of this book consists of contributions by others who knew Balagoon, while the second, larger, section consists of court statements and essays by Balagoon himself. A final third section consists of an edited selection of excerpts from letters he wrote while in prison.

New edition published 2019, Kersplebedeb and PM Press.
