Bo Brown

program date: 
Wed, 02/02/2011

On this episode, we feature excerpts of a 2-hour interview we did with Rita “Bo” Brown.

Bo Brown is most well known to us as a member of The George Jackson Brigade, a Seattle based revolutionary group. To learn more about the George Jackson Brigade in general, we recommend the recently published books by Daniel Burton-rose, Guerilla USA, and Creating a Movement with Teeth.

Rita "Bo" Brown, was originally from Klamath, Oregon, and moved to Seattle in the 60’s to find community she’d lacked in Klamath. She soon found lesbian bars, and political activists. She became radicalized while in prison for a “social crime”, and was reading the George Jackson book “Soledad Brother” when he was murdered in California, in 1971.
