Who Hasn't Heard of the Black Liberation Army?

I’m listening to an NPR interview with Bryan Burrough regarding his book Days of Rage. The book is about the radical movements of the seventies and specifically the guerrilla groups like the Weather Underground and how they operated within the framework of violent radicalism. The interviewer asked about the BLA and posited that most people hadn’t heard of them. I say balderdash! Have you heard of them?

ETA: Mention of Tupac, naturally is mother Afeni was an important member in the Panther movement, but the interviewer mentions his step dad first before Afeni. Curious since most would be familiar with his mom.
