Hill also co-authored a book with convicted cop killer Wesley Cook, aka Mumia Abu Jamal.
The photo used by Hill on Veteran’s Day was posted May 15, 2014 on a blog by Black Panther member Timothy Hayes with the description, “This picture is of Female Cuban soldiers marching in a May Day parade. I like to think that Antonia’s spirit and the spirits of other freedom fighting women live on in women like this,” in tribute to a female Cuban soldier he fought alongside with in Angola who was killed.
