Get this book y’all! The FBI WAR on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders. It details how our freedom loving United States government targeted an attacked leaders and activists such as Bob Marley, Fred Hampton, Assata Shakur, Afeni Shakur, Jimi Hendrix, Huey P Newton and many many more who were subject to COINTELPRO and cointelpro style tactics of repression and neutralization. There’s a documentary tied in with the book as well that I have posted up on several occasions.
