Just got this from Freedom Archives, sent via the email list of  International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal:

POLITICAL PRISONER SEKOU KAMBUI TO BE RELEASED FROM PRISON

After 40 years incarcerated in Alabama State prisons, political prisoner  Sekou Kambui (sn. William Turk) was granted parole on June 18, 2014. He will be in the process of transitioning to a halfway house over the next two weeks.

As a youth in the 1950’s and 60’s, Sekou was involved in the civil rights movement, and was a member of the Black Panther Party. Throughout his years in prison, he continued to organize for justice and prisoner rights.

Sekou’s parole success is a happy and unexpected victory for Sekou, his friends and supporters, and for all political prisoners who can gain renewed hope from Sekou’s upcoming release.

–Eve Goldberg, longterm friend and supporter.
