Amina and the band will perform for this important annual fundraising dinner on behalf of political prisoners...

The Malcolm X Commemoration Committee is pleased to announce its 2018 annual Dinner Tribute to the Families of our PPOWs. This is a tradition started twenty-two years ago by Iyaluua Ferguson, wife, comrade and life partnerof our late co-founder and Chairman Emeritus, Herman Ferguson. This 22nd ANNUAL DINNER TRIBUTE to the FAMILIES of our PPOWs is co-sponsored by the National Alumni Association of the Black Panther Party (NAABPP) with the theme, “ HONORING THOSE WHO SPREAD THE WORD: Our Revolutionary Griots.”

Along with paying Tribute to our captured Freedom Fighters and their Families, we will also honor a few Movement media voices – Nayaba Arinde, editor of New York City’s Amsterdam News, Sally O’Brien, radio co-host/producer of WBAI’s Where We Live, Basir Mchawi, host of WBAI’s Education at the Crossroads, Solwazi Afi Olusola, DARA: Ancestral Beauty Photography and Ngoma, artist, poet and musician extraordinaire.

​These folks have collectively kept the community informed and enlightened about our PPOWs and their Families as they’ve struggled against a criminally unjust legal and prison system.

Invited to perform are radical poet, singer, Amina Baraka, accompanied by the Red Microphone, and Shelly, a phenomenal spoken word artist.

For two decades and counting, it has been Freedom-loving folk like you who have helped carry this Dinner Tribute forward. We count on your continued commitment and support as we all carry our captured Freedom Fighters and their Families forward.

If you are not able to attend PLEASE MAKE A DONATION .
