WHO WAS AFENI SHAKUR?
Afeni Shakur (born Alice Faye Williams; January 10, 1947 – May 2, 2016).
AfeniShakur was an American music businesswoman, philanthropist, political activist and #BlackPanther. She was the mother of the late rapper #TupacShakur. She acted as her own criminal defense attorney after being accused of taking part in numerous bombings as a member of the Panthers.
Shakur was reportedly in Federal Court on July 20, 2007, to file an injunction to prevent Death Row Records from selling any unreleased material from #Tupac after the company failed to prove that the unreleased songs were not part of its bankruptcy settlement. She created a record label named #AmaruRecords to release Tupac's unreleased recordings. #AfeniShakur won her court case against Death Row Record to receive 150 unreleased songs by her son.
She died on May 2, 2016 at 10:28 PM in Sausalito, California.
