Kwaku Duren heads the New African American Vanguard Movement, based in South/Central Los Angeles. NAAVM sees itself as a successor group to the Black Panther Party. NAAVM members were in Orange County Sunday for a "Voices against Oppression" event at Koos Art Cafe in Santa Ana, where they also presented a videotape, "Passing It On," a documentary about the BPP. An NAAVM activist and former BPP member, Shareef Abdullah, Sunday exhorted the packed audience of dozens of mostly white teen punk rockers to get politically involved. Later this month, former BPP member Geronimo Pratt appeals his 1972 murder conviction in an Orange County courtroom. The appeal hearing was moved from L.A. County.
