Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei. In recent weeks there’s been renewed interest about FBI surveillance of leading black activists in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
Last month a death bed letter written by a deceased former police officer stated the New York Police Department and FBI were connected to Malcolm X’s 1965 assassination.
The FBI surveilled activists across the country in the late 60’s and early 70’s . One of those was Tampa activist, Askia Mohammed Aquil. The Tampa Bay Times carried a story about the surveillance last weekend. Aquil spoke with me earlier this week.
