    Justice or Just-Us

    Watu wetu ilishuka kwa milio ya risasi; sekunde kumi na nne, mishumaa kumi na sita lit, na sijui maana ya juu kumi na mbili mwenye umri wa miaka ya keki ya kuzaliwa. Unaweza kufikiria ni kama mfano, lakini unajua nini mimi kuzungumza juu, hivyo unajua nini namaanisha. kaka alisema hakuweza kupumua, na wewe kusema hii sio haki au tu-us! mpunga wagon safari kuishia na ndugu waliokufa na mgongo kuvunjwa. Na wewe kusema hii sio haki au tu-us! A traffic stop in Texas turns into an...SOMA ZAIDI


    Words of Encouragement for My African Queens and Daughters

    Painting by Live from Lockdown contributor Kenneth Key, incarcerated at Stateville Correctional Center (Illinois Idara ya Masahihisho). I want to talk to my young queens, my sisters, my daughters, who have been scarred by past relationships. Every day I think of you and just want to convey some words of encouragement. Ni maombi yangu kwamba maneno yangu kuwasha baadhi ya kusafiri nafsi na kuongeza imani yako katika binafsi. A belief that many of you have lost. Ninatambua kwamba wakati wewe kuishi kwa ...SOMA ZAIDI


    Kill the Rhetoric: End Police Brutality

    Recent shots fired have entered the bodies of unarmed citizens and come out the other side only to kill policemen. All across America the anger, the fear, built up between police officers and poor minority communities is becoming weaponized. Those of us on the sidelines can’t help but wonder, where is this going? If America is to ever truly become the land of the free and a land of equality, that must start with all citizens enjoying the right to live. No sane mind would suggest that the...SOMA ZAIDI


    Stay the Course and Fight!

    We must stay the course and not allow the challenges that come our way to impede our forward progress. Badala yake, we must view our challenges as blessings and opportunities to grow. No matter what we are striving for in our personal lives, if we want it, we must fight for it. When we don’t struggle for the things we want, we will inevitably experience fear that we will not achieve what we want or a sense of guilt when opportunity passes us by. Even when we may have put forth some effort, we...SOMA ZAIDI


    Building Our Communities

    How are we supposed to feel a part of this country when the powers that be just do what they want to our people? We need money for everything, but the sad reality is that we need money to keep our families together. Without money we are considered dead. But when we get money, we just buy materialistic shit to show our worth. In reality, we could have all the materialistic shit out there and front like we got it, but our families will be fucked up. Parents are acting like their kids don’t...SOMA ZAIDI


    Msamaha: An Apology to All Women

    “If anyone will take these two words to heart and use them for her own guidance, she will be almost without sin and will lead a very powerful life. These two words are bear and for bear.” -Epicetus I bring a message of apology for all the pain we men have caused you, for abandoning you to a world that has no idea the magnitude of your greatness. I apologize that we have termed you our baby’s mama, instead of giving you the title you deserve, that of Queen. I know we men have...SOMA ZAIDI


    ACHENI Vurugu!

    1 GUN, 2 GUN, 3 GUN – BANG! Kama '80s vinyl, kukwangua rekodi kujirudia tena na tena. Na ingawa wengi kuonekana kuwa kulishwa juu, uchovu wa kufanya kilio wimbo, wote kufanya kitu zaidi ya kilio blues. watu pole, lakini hii si rap. Ni ukweli. Mimi si kuitisha maandamano. Mimi si wito kwa vurugu! Mimi si wito kwa nyuma vitendo ambayo mahali vizazi vijavyo katika kukata tamaa zaidi. Na ingawa sapa yangu inaweza kuwa kama maarufu kama wengi bila ...SOMA ZAIDI


    The Evolution of Overseer to Police Officer (Sehemu 2)

    Read The Evolution of Overseer to Police Officer (Sehemu 1). Once again the modern day Overseers have proven to the people of African descent that no matter how much we peacefully protest, our lives truly DO NOT MATTER! As I watched that horrific video of Philando Castile slaughtered in the backseat of a car in front of his fiancee and four year old daughter and left to bleed-out like a cattle, I almost shed tears! Tears of anger, kuchanganyikiwa, udhalilishaji, helplessness, and familiarity. It was...SOMA ZAIDI


    The Mind of My True Enemy

    #RaiseUP – Peace to the inmate nation and the REAL family members and loved ones who never left my corner. Today I’m approaching the session from a totally different angle . . . I call this angle “The Mind of My True Enemy”. Before I drop FREE JEWELS, let me say G-lookin’ to KB and the Big Homie Mass for even making a social platform like Live from Lockdown even possible. I believe in the power of dedicated minds. I greet you from the confines of USP...SOMA ZAIDI


    No Oversight, No Balance

    As a blogger on Live from Lockdown, my job is to write on interesting subjects from a unique and fresh perspective that appeal to a target audience. I am an advocate for criminal justice reform, the Co-Founder of The TAWL Foundation, the author of (among other books) The Art of Winning Litigation. I consider my audience to be broad and multi-dimensional. Their realities and individual concerns drastically differ from their collective concerns. It is my job to transcend these different...SOMA ZAIDI
