(ABOVE) The NBFSN adopts Mandingo Blackwell (below) and recognizes his actions in the early January Durham, North Carolina Rite Aid alleged robbery as a legitimate Nead Diggers’ Reparation’ Protests. “We recognize this as a protest & not a crime,” says North Carolina Black Foot Soldier Moses Grandy. According to reports, two Rite Aid workers were wounded when Blackwell burst in the store demanding reparations. Twenty four year old cashier Ruth Long, a mother of two was, after allegedly refusing Blackwell’s instructions, killed. “We demand the immediate release of brother Mandingo Mandella Blackwell,” speaking on behalf of the NBFSN, Grandy states. “Had due reparations been paid this protest wouldn’t have been necessary. Her blood is on white America’s hands.”
