Exciting news for Marshall "Eddie" Conway: After forty-four years of unjustly held behind bars, the ex-Black Panther leader and political prisoner was finally released on March 4! Less than 24 hours later, he appeared on Democracy Now! to talk about what it was like writing his memoir,Marshall Law, while in prison, and the process of finally being proved innocent. That same day he spoke on WEAA-FM (NPR)/The Marc Steiner Show in Baltimore to discuss similar topics. Many national news outlets are covering the release, including Fox, CBS, and NBC just to name a few. AK Press published Conway's memoir and rejoiced for Conway on their blog: "At the age of twenty-four, he was torn from his family and friends and political work by federal agents' intent of shutting him down and shutting him up. As anyone who has read his memoir knows, they failed."
