Rest in Power: Minister of Defense AP (11/5/03 – 07/19/22)
In a targeted attack by the Fayetteville Police Department, SWAT and the FBI on the headquarters of the Atlanta chapter of the Black Hammer Party, Black Hammer’s Minister of Defense, AP, was shot and killed. One of the most luminous, bright, charismatic, real, humble, and inspired young people in Atlanta and in the world, killed by the colonial state. He was 18 years old.
Homeless on the streets of Atlanta, AP joined the Black Hammer Party because he wanted to make a change for his people. As he became more politically educated, he saw how his life was interconnected with colonized people around the world and so he fought for the liberation of African, indigenous, and Asian people worldwide. As the Minister of Defense, he made sure that chapters of the Black Hammer Party were able to keep their resource distribution to the homeless as safe as possible and showed the importance of self-defense to comrades. A revolutionary leader made and in the making, he was also one of the masterminds behind Black Hammer Records—a record label to make music for the revolution to inspire our people on the streets to fight for what’s theirs and take back their lives.
Minister of Defense AP housed, clothed and fed hundreds of homeless people in Atlanta every week. He dedicated his life to his people. And the colony took that life away. But what the pigs did not take away was the power that AP gave to every person sleeping on the streets who now feels safer and more secure because of the Black Hammer Party. You can kill a revolutionary, but you can’t kill the revolution. Because of AP, the revolution runs deeper into the hearts of the people than ever before and now will only run even deeper because of the light that was stolen. Land back to all poor and working class colonized people worldwide. AP fought for that mission and that mission will continue with his memory pushing us forward! We love you twin!
