Rev. Pinkney and his wife Dorothy. Rev. Pinkney was held as a political prisoner for 21⁄2 years because he led the community’s
challenge to a corporate backed mayor in Benton Harbor.
After 30 months of his life stolen by imprisonment for his leadership in the community’s fight against Whirpool’s takeover of their town, Rev. Edward Pinkney is home in Benton Harbor! Also, the Michigan Supreme Court’s recent request for oral argument in Pinkney’s case is good news. This is the closest he has gotten to the possibility of some semblance of justice. — People’s Tribune
