We the undersigned academics are writing you in support of the petition for the parole of Dr. Mutulu Shakur. Many of us have worked with Dr. Shakur on projects toward the education and rehabilitation of his fellow inmates. We are also familiar with his work to promote peace within the penitentiary and on our urban streets. Others of us are familiar with his advocacy for a Truth and Reconciliation process to heal the continued hostility within the United States resulting from the turbulence of the Civil Rights, Black Power, and anti-war movements. We understand that Dr. Mutulu Shakur meets the criteria for parole. His risk assessments prove that he is not a danger to society. In fact, given his history of community service, inside and outside of prison, he is an asset and can make huge contributions upon his release. We believe his activity for conflict resolution and transformation of his fellow inmates, and his advocacy and work for reconciliation demonstrate that he is no threat to the community. We unequivocally support Dr. Shakur’s petition for parole. We anticipate his release and expect him to contribute to efforts to bring peace in the community and to participate in conversations towards understanding of our history and healing of our contemporary reality.
