My introduction to the Civil Rights was in 1970, I was 5 years old, I was living in New Haven, Connecticut. My mother was actively involved in the Black Panther movement. She would take my brother and I to rallies and Panther meetings. There was always was alot of enthusiasm at these rallies. My mother went to prison in 1970 and me and my brother became wards of the court of New Haven, Connecticut. My mother was released from prison and relocated to Baltimore where she passed away in 1974. I am 48 years old now and I just recently discovered that in 1970 Bobby Seal was arrested and fasley charge with murder and was locked up in New Haven, Connecticut. My mother gave me a birds eye view of the struggle.
