THE PASSING OF THE PEOPLE’S WARRRIOR
d. September 25, 2014
Jericho honors Comrade Brother and co-founder of the Jericho Movement, Herman Ferguson, who passed Thursday, September 25th surrounded by his loving wife and comrades. We extend our prayers, thoughts and well-wishing to Sister Iyaluua Ferguson and the Ferguson family.
Brother Herman Ferguson represents all of us in so many ways – from working man, community organizer, educator, fugitive, husband, comrade, revolutionary, mentor, and leader. Herman played a decisive leadership role in the struggle for community control of NYC school systems of Ocean-Hill Brownsville, Harlem, and the Lower East Side in the late 60’s. Brother Herman was one of Malcolm X’s close associates, and a prominent member of Malcolm X’s Muslim Mosque Inc., and later one of the founding members of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU); both organizations created by Malcolm 1964. He also helped to organize the Republic of new Afrika and was a member of the Revolutionary Action Movement (RAM).
