Book Launch – Maroon the Implacable, April 8 at Vanderbilt University

Russell Maroon Shoatz is a political prisoner who has been held unjustly for over thirty years, including two decades in solitary confinement. He was active as a leader in the Black Liberation Movement in Philadelphia, both above and underground. His successful escapes from maximum-security prisons earned him the title “Maroon.” Maroon the Implacable: the collected writings of Russell Maroon Shoatz is the first published collection of his accumulated written works, and also includes new essays written expressly for this volume.
