The Assassination of George Jackson
--an interview with Colonel Nyati Bolt

By Angola 3 News

Angola 3 News is excited to release the third interview in our new video-series focusing on the Angola 3 and the many issues that are central to their story, like racism, repression, prisons, human rights, solitary confinement as torture, and more.

This new interview features Colonel Nyati Bolt, who was an inmate at Californias San Quentin Prison at the same time as George Jackson (Sept. 23, 1941 - Aug. 21, 1971), the legendary Black Panther Party Field Marshal, and author of two books written behind bars: Soledad Brother and Blood In My Eye. The story of George Jackson and his legacy today will be the focus of many of our upcoming videos.

Bolt remembers the day of Jacksons assassination in 1971, when Bolt was working in the medical unit. He explains that he was ordered to bring gurneys down before hed heard any gunshots, leading him to believe that the guards shooting of Jackson was planned. When Bolt arrived outside and began to approach Jacksons body to provide medical attention, he was shot at by guards, who forced him to retreat.

Please stay tuned for part two of our interview with Bolt, talking about his experience later at Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola
