This is an update reguarding Dr. Mutulu Shakur, father of late hip hop rap icon Tupac Shakur; and his upcoming parole hearing. The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement has asked that all letters of support for Dr. Shakur be sent by Feb. 3rd. The following is thier communication.

Dear friends and supporters of Dr. Mutulu Shakur,

We come to you in peace and harmony. The time has come once again for us to lift our spirits and let our voices be heard. On Monday, February 7, 2005 , Dr. Shakur will go for his parole hearing. We are asking that you please send letters of support so that this day does not pass in vain. It is our duty as Afrikan people to support those in our community that have laid their life on the lines for us and served to decrease injustice and oppression against our people.

Dr. Shakur was sentenced in 1986 on charges of Conspiracy to aid bank expropriation as well as under the U. S. conspiracy laws known as "Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization" or ''RICO'' laws (8 counts). The U.S. government alleged that Mutulu's political associates constituted a racketeering enterprise. He was also charged with aiding in the escape of Assata Shakur (Joanne Chesimard). Prosecutors failed to provide key evidence such as electronic telephone interceptions, fingerprint of appellant Shakur at any crime scene, hair of appellant Shakur at any crime scene, eyewitness identification of appellant Shakur at any crime scene by any third party, etc.

His efforts in the black community have been essential and liberating. Dr. Mutulu Shakur’s contributions include but are not limited to:

· Employment at the Lincoln Detoxification Community (addiction treatment) Program as a political education instructor. His role evolved to include counseling and treatment of withdrawal symptoms with acupuncture.

· Managing a detoxification program recognized as the largest and most effective of its kind by the National Institute of Drug Abuse, National Acupuncture Research Society and the World Academic Society of Acupuncture.

· Treating thousands of poor and elderly patients who would otherwise have no access to acupunctural treatment.

· Developing the anti-drug program for the Charles Cobb Commission for Racial Justice for the National Council of Churches.

· Dedicating his life and struggle against the political imprisonment of Black Political Activists.

Please take the time to recognize a black leader in the community and help fight for his freedom. Address the letters to:

Edward F. Reilly Jr. Chairman,

U.S. Parole Commission

5550 Friendship Blvd, Suite 420

Chevy Chase , MD 20815-7201
