An Unlikely Warrior
Evolution of a Black Nationalist Revolutionary
Iyaluua Ferguson & Herman Ferguson
An Unlikely Warrior tells the amazing biographic story of Herman Ferguson. The book chronicles his evolution from an “ all- american “ boy growing up in the Jim Crow South to a Pan Africanist/ Black Nationalist activist who has been involved in the Political Prisoner Movement, Reparations Movement, and a myriad of other social justice movements.
A former NYC Public School Assistant Principal, Ferguson, now 92 years young, was a founding member of Malcolm X’s Organization Of Afro American Unity. A target of the infamous COINTELPRO campaign by the United States government and NYPD against the Black Liberation movement, Ferguson was charged with conspiracy to kill two prominent civil rights and , upon conviction, went into exile for nearly twenty years. When he returned to the US, he was incarcerated. Although close to 70 years of age upon his release from prison, Ferguson rejoined the movement for Black equality and human rights, forming the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee , co- founding the Jericho Movement, and other organizations.
