Black Panthers' bomb almost killed my father and me 39 years ago today

by CynthiaYockey on March 23, 2009

My father and I came within five-to-10 minutes of being killed by a Black Panthers’ bomb that detonated in the car of the bombers just after they crossed Tollgate Road at Route 1 in Bel Air, Maryland. The bombers were on their way out of town because their intended target, the Bel Air Courthouse, where Edwin and John Wilkes Booth performed Shakespeare, was surrounded by police all night before the trial of H. Rap Brown.

I have to go out for a few hours now, but here are some links to get started:

Time Magazine’s account of the bombing, plus a blast a couple of weeks earlier now connected to Bill Ayers

An effort is now underway to connect Bill Ayers to a bombing that killed a police officer in San Francisco.

Remember that Obama started his political career in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, co-founders of the domestic terrorist group, the Weathermen, murderers freed on technicalities when they were brought to trial.
