After San Quentin guards in 1971 killed George Jackson, Black Panther revolutionary, writer, and prisoner - with a one-year-to-life sentence for a $70 robbery - they found in his library two searing poems about oppression and captivity.

A new exhibit at a Palestinian museum explores the "radical kinship" of two groups voicing "the same anguish and the same terrors."
