MARCH 16TH MARKS 14 YEARS SINCE THE FRAMING AND KIDNAPPING OF RAP!!!

 

During the 1960’s, H. Rap Brown, one of my leaders (now known as Imam Jamil Al-Amin) rose to popularity as one of “the most articulate and outspoken critics of the Jim Crow South”. Former Chairman of SNCC (Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee) and Minister of Justice for the Black Panther Party, Imam Jamil Al-Amin has become one of the many victims of the continuation of the FBI’s Cointelpro. On March 16th 2000, Imam Jamil was accused and framed in the murder of an Atlanta Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputy and the wounding of another. Although no scientific or physical evidence linked Imam Jamil to the scene, he was sentenced to 135 years.

 

On August 1, 2007. Imam Jamil Al-Amin was transferred from Georgia to the MAXIMUM SECURITY FEDERAL PRISON at FLORENCE, COLORADO known as the SUPER MAX, where he is currently held captive.

 

We are calling on All Freedom Fighters, Organizations, Students, Rappers, Poets, Artists, Athletes, Educators and all other Concerned Citizens to join us in the fight to Free Rap!

 

Also in appreciation for his work on our behalf, feel free to write him a letter at:

 

Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin #99974-555 USP Florence ADMAX Post Office Box 8500 Florence, Colorado 81226
