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.


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.
