Shakur, born as Alice Faye Williams, was a member of the Black Panther Party and spent 11 months in jail after being accused of being connected to several bombings when associated with the party.

Williams served as her own defense attorney and was acquitted on a slew of charges. The philanthropist was released from prison just before her son 2Pac was born in 1971.

One year following the untimely 1996 death of her son, Afeni, the woman who inspired one of Pac’s greatest hits, “Dear Mama,” founded the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation as well as Amaru Entertainment.

Further details surrounding Shakur’s death will be addressed later this morning.
