Captain Reggie Schell: Black Panther, 1941-2012 by Mumia Abu-Jamal recorded 5-11-12

Reggie Schell was Mumia's early mentor in the Black Panther Party, when Mumia was still in his teens.  When Mumia was arrested Reggie was a key and very strong supporter, attending the trial, and helping to build support.  Reggie and Mumia continued their friendship and comradeship over many years.  We mourn the loss of this fighter and teacher, but celebrate the leadership role he played and the mentoring he provided to someone like Mumia.    
Long live Reggie Schell!
