Justice for Imam Jamil Al-Amin! Formerly known as H. Rap Brown, his fearless work in SNCC, the Black Panther Party, and as a religious leader inspired many and for that attracted state violence. Now, medical neglect has left him legally blind as he serves time for a crime that he was unjustly convicted for and another man confessed to.
This follows a long history of political repression, including an FBI COINTELPRO memo that called to “neutralize” him, other revolutionary leaders like Kwame Ture, and the struggle for Black liberation as a whole. We cannot sit and wait while the carceral system grinds him down! He needs support now, not commemorations later.
