His legacy lives on

Alphonso Figgers spent most of his life fighting to abolish the death penalty in Florida.  
Figgers, 65, who died at home on April 26, was laid to rest Saturday.  His funeral was Saturday at New Bethel A.M.E. in Quincy.
Figgers was part of the Quincy Five, a group of young black men from Quincy who were charged and convicted in the 1970 murder of a Leon County sheriff’s
deputy.
