Remembering Dedon Kamathi

Dedon Kamathi, a former Black Panther and Central Committee member of the All African Peoples Revolutionary Party, passed away at the end of August after suffering a stroke.

Dedon was one of the first revolutionary Black internationalists I was to get to know and work with, and his loss hit me hard.
