Freedom is a Constant Struggle TV show, Sept. 11, 2009.

Guest Bobby Seale, Founding Chairman of the Black Panther Party, organizer, author, consultant, mentor, and current producer of "Bobby Seale's R.E.A.C.H! Chronicles: An on-line SOCIAL CHANGE magazine-journal." A revolutionary humanist, Bobby also continues to speak at colleges and universities across the country about social change from the sixties to the future.

Largely in response to the death of George Jackson in August, New York's Attica State Prison rebels staged a four-day uprising, Sept. 9 - 13, 1971, during which they called for specified observers to mediate the standoff between the rebels (holding guards hostage) and the Administration. On Sept. 11, Bobby entered the prison to act as a negotiator of prisoners' demands. Unfortunately, NY Governor Nelson Rockefeller decided to end the prison takeover with a military assault that killed 29 prisoners and 10 guards with another 85 wounded, some of whom would die later.
