    African Hebrew Israelites and Redemptive Struggle in Prison

    Young brothers enter prison and become curious about religion and various spiritual paths. 30 brothers meet upstairs in the gym at Stateville Correctional Center (Joliet, Illinois) to gain understanding about Hebrew Israelites and the Hebraic way of life. Once a month we have a question and answer in the spirit of universal brotherhood and righteousness. The aim is to give all in search of redemption practical things they can do, as well as historical information on our identity and...CITESTE MAI MULT

    Kevin King, known as KK, has just been convicted of Armed Robbery and sentenced to 65 years in prison. KK is 24 years-old. He must serve 85% of his 65-year sentence, which will make him about 70 when he is released from prison. KK is an only child, no nieces, nepoți, cousins, unchii, or aunts. His mother is on crack and the streets raised him. Once KK hits the jail most of the streets abandoned him. His homies disappeared. His girlfriend left.

    Hood PTSD is Real

    I know a secret that most men and women in prison and in urban America suffer from. Our secret is is Hood Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Hood PTSD). Hood PTSD is an understanding and recognition that men, women and children raised in war-torn ghettos across the United States of America face the same harms, anxieties and mental disorders as our soldiers who serve in the military and go to war. I believe my mental disorder (Hood PTSD) was caused by numerous factors such as abusive parents,...CITESTE MAI MULT

    The Mis-Education of Black Children

    “The marvel of the living mind is that when it is illumined it can move into uncharted territories. It is enabled to take this step not out of reaction to the hurts of the past, but through the miracle of liberation from them…” -Indira Gandhi I read somewhere that “one of the highest most universal freedom in the world is the freedom to educate your children to live free.” But that is a freedom consistently, systematically and viciously denied the children of African descent in...CITESTE MAI MULT

    When does forgiveness begin and dehumanization stop?

    “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Johan Wolfgang von Goethe “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” -Hebrews 13:13 I want to take a moment to define I’ve shared a quote in a previous post by my friend and author J. Doyle what is meant by dehumanization- to divest of human qualities or personality. This process...CITESTE MAI MULT

    Samuel Karim: Who I Am

    20 ani de încarcerare- Samuel Karim of Chicago, Illinois Digging deep in the complex soil that is me, Samuel Karim, understanding why I am who I am– that is my legacy. I was born during the 1970s into a Muslim home with its own complexities. My father was a minister of the Nation of Islam. I was born in Chicago. I have lived in Saint Louis, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and Gary, Indiana. I have attended around nineteen different schools. I really never had any sort of foundation except...CITESTE MAI MULT

    Time to Wake Up

    It’s time to wake up! Along time ago I had to learn to accept that just as not all characters are the same, not all minds are alike. Therefore because a lesson is capable of being taught by one does not dictate that it can easily be learned by another. Certain things can be understood by certain people, but most things are likely to be misunderstood by most people. Uite, I’m no athlete, actor, politician, or any other type public figure, so I don’t have to be politically...CITESTE MAI MULT

    2016 Presidential Election: Ce vrem?

    “The opposite of fact is falsehood, but the opposite of one profound truth may very well be another profound truth.” -Neils Bohr I’ve been thinking about the 2016 presidential election and how blacks are too focused on who we want in office when we should be more focused on what we want for our vote. Democratic politicians simply expect the black vote, like it’s inherited from their predecessor, while ignoring our concerns. Their prospects depend in large part on giving...CITESTE MAI MULT

    The Real: Prisoners discuss use of the N-word

    I attend a class here at Stateville Correctional Center (Joliet, IL) called Further Learning/Creative Writing. The class consists of reading various great authors and writing what got out of and think about the literature. We read Black Boy by Richard Wright and discussed it in class. In particular, the use of the word nigger and question of who can and cannot use the word. Out of this discussion was born a conversation with a young brother by the name of Toney Cole R-47028. Tony is 31-years...CITESTE MAI MULT
