Kiilu Nyasha (May 22, 1939 – April 10, 2018) was an American Black Panther, journalist, and revolutionary activist. She was born in 1939, and grew up in New York City and San Francisco.

Career[edit]

In San Francisco, she joined the Black Panther Party and worked for a lawyer who defended the Party.[1] In her life, she met and worked with other activists like Yuri Kochiyama and Jean-Bertrand Aristide.[2][3]

After the Black Panther Party ended, Kiilu Nyasha became known as a journalist. She hosted a radio show where she did interviews and wrote articles for San Francisco newspapers. After Hurricane Katrina, she gave a speech at the University of Arizona about the U.S. government's racism.[4] She often spoke out to say other revolutionaries who were in prison should be released; one of the prisoners she supported the most was Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is also a journalist.[5][6][7] Kiilu Nyasha kept doing journalism and activism right up to the time she died.
