SummaryOn January 24, 2011, Hydra Lacy was killed as police came to his home to take him to join the more than one million African people held captive in U.S. prisons — but not before two St. Petersburg police lay dead and a U.S. marshal wounded. More than 100 police from various state and federal agencies were also held off outside Lacy's home for several hours. On January 30, 2011, at the regular meeting of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement, African community members and family and friends of Hydra Lacy came together and discussed the incident and subsequent slander launched against Lacy. This is African Socialist International Chairman Omali Yeshitela's presentation to that meeting.
