“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Assata Shakur was born JoAnne Deborah Byron on July 16, 1947, in Jamaica, Queens, New York City. Her early educational career took a backseat to her involvement in the struggle to bring liberation to her people. She was more apt to take part in a sit-in or demonstration at college than to spend time poring over books and listening to dry, Eurocentric academic lectures. Her main subject of study was Black history and Black struggle.
