American fugitives in Cuba include:
The former Joanne Chesimard, a leader of the Black Liberation Army
who has a $1 million bounty on her head in the killing of a New
Jersey state trooper in 1973. Now known as Assata Shakur, she is said
to have gone into hiding.
Guillermo Morales, a Puerto Rican nationalist arrested on bomb-making
charges in 1978 after accidentally blowing off all but one of his
fingers in his Queens, N.Y., apartment. Morales escaped from custody
in New York in 1979 and traveled to Mexico, where he was allowed to go to Cuba.
Nehanda Abiodun, formerly known as Cheri Dalton, a black militant
wanted by the FBI for a string of robberies. Among the heists is the
1981 holdup of an armored car carrying $1.6 million near Nyack, N.Y.
She now promotes hip-hop culture in Havana.
