Dr. Mutulu Shakur is a legend in the Black liberation movement. As a former member of both the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army, he’s widely known as a defender of Black freedom.
He was charged and convicted of helping Assata Shakur flee her unjust confinement, leading to her freedom in Cuba.
But Dr. Shakur earned kudos for works as a doctor trained in acupuncture where he used his art to treat many, many drug addicts during the 1960s and 70s. Dr. Shakur co-founded several healthcare institutions in the Bronx using acupuncture treatment instead of methadone to detox drug addicts. People in New York ghettos know and love Dr. Shakur for his unflinching service to the people.
Today, Dr. Mutulu Shakur is free. But after decades in federal prisons, he now needs your help to pull his life together. Support Dr. Mutulu Shakur. For more information, go to mutulushakur.com.
