Radical roommates Katherine Ann Power and Susan Edith Saxe (pictured in the next slide) took part in a Black Panther planned plot to protest the Vietnam War in 1970. In order to fund the Panthers, the pair successfully robbed a National Guard armory but in the following bank robbery, one of their accomplices murdered a Boston police officer. Power and Saxe escaped authorities during the botched robbery but were added to the Most Wanted list two months later. Saxe avoided the fed for five years before her arrest, but Power remained on the loose for 23 years before surrendering in 1993. She served six years of a sentence for armed robbery and manslaughter.
