Scission's Prison Friday wants you to know about New African political prisoner Sekou Cinque T.M Kambui. Sekou has been locked away for decades now and is serving two life sentences on trumpeted up charges. The State of Alabama says he killed two white men in 1975, one a Klansman and one a multi millionaire.
Sekou has been denied parole time and again despite a prison record free of disciplinary problems and despite substantial doubts about why in the hell he is in prison to begin with. For example, Sekou has never been placed at or near either crime scenes, no murder weapon was ever found, and no direct evidence was ever offered against him.
He is a paralegal professional and has been an active jailhouse lawyer and prisoners' rights activist for more than 25 years.
In 1967 Sekou joined the Black Panther Party in Chicago and New York. While in Detroit, he became a member of the Republic of New Afrika, before returning to Birmingham. Back in Alabama, Sekou coordinated community organizaton activity with the Alabama Black Liberation Front, the Inmates for Action (IFA) Defense Committee and the Afro-American People's Party. Sekou also became a soldier in the Black Liberation Army (BLA)during the years before his capture.
