Mother to one of the most iconic and prolific men of our generation, Afeni Shakur has passed away from reported cardiac arrest at the age of 69 in her Sausalito, California home. Born Alice Faye Williams, Shakur moved to New York City as a young woman and became a member of the Black Panther movement. It was also there that she was imprisoned along with many other Black Panthers for allegedly plotting to bomb multiple city landmarks.
Throughout that ordeal Afeni would give birth to hip hop’s most polarizing figure Tupac Shakur shortly after being acquitted on all charges and being released on May 1971. She is also the subject of one of the most important songs in pop culture to date, Dear Mama. Post her son’s tragic murder, She went on to produce “Holler If Ya Hear Me” which is a Broadway musical surrounded around the iconic music of her late son. She went on to do philanthropic work for inner city youth and education. Certainly she has helped cement a legacy that cannot be diminished.
We salute you Afeni, you are mother, you are strength, you are tragedy you are triumph. You are a staple in hip-hop and pop culture just as your son is and we will forever keep your name alive.
“There’s no way I can pay you back/But the plan is to show you that I understand/You are appreciated,”
