1. Ex-Informant or Ex-Panther or BOTH: The bombshell revelations on Richard Aoki
The late Richard Aoki has been called many things:long time California-based community activist, victim of Japanese internment, former member of the original Black Panther Party. But one thing no one ever expected him to be called was an FBI informant. Investigative journalist and author Seth Rosenfeld released the proverbial cracken in his new book Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals and Reagan’s Rise to Power claiming that the now deceased but still respected Aoki was working with the FBI while he was a member of the Black Panther Party (and apparently the one that first supplied them with guns). In an exclusive segment, we will air our interview with Seth Rosenfeld and talk to long time community activist Bob Wing (former co-editor of Colorlines and War Times magazines) about the allegations, whether they are true and what it all means.
