 Dedon Kamathi

I just received a call with the sad news of the passing of brother Dedon Kamathi, long time host of Freedom Now here at KPFK, a former member of the Pacifica National Board and the local board, former member of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense out of San Diego and an international figure in the struggle for the liberation of Africa and of all oppressed and exploited people. This is a great and grievous loss for the movements and for Pacifica. As we get more details, we will keep people informed of where and how to express their condolences.

Marvin X on Dedon Kamathi:

We are deeply saddened by news of Dedon's transition. We recall his recent interview of Norman Richmond and myself on the anniversary of the Vietnam War. May he rest in peace.

Long Live Black Liberation fighters,
Marvin X
