Panther correction

Issue section: 
(405)

I enjoyed your article When Gays and Panthers were United (July/August SR).

However, there are a number of inaccuracies in paragraph 4.

There were 21 members of the Black Panther Party arrested for conspiracy in New York. They became known as the Panther 21.

Erica Huggins was not one of the Panther 21, neither was she Tupac’s mother. Erica was a member of the Black Panther Party.

Afeni Shakur was one of the Panther 21 and she was Tupac’s mother. Afeni was pregnant while in prison; however, she was released one month before Tupac was born.

Keep up the good work!
