KEVIN “RASHID” JOHNSON & THE NEW AFRIKAN BLACK PANTHER PARTY-PRISON CHAPTER

In 1990, Kev­in “Rashid” John­son was a drug deal­er, an ambi­tious mem­ber of amerika’s Black lumpen pro­let­ari­at, or under­class. Like so many, as a young adult he was arres­ted and received a lengthy pris­on sen­tence. He has been incar­cer­ated ever since – for the past eight­een years in con­di­tions of sol­it­ary con­fine­ment.

As Rashid has writ­ten, “Because I accep­ted my life­style and all of its con­sequences, I was always reluct­ant to involve my fam­ily or oth­ers on the out­side of pris­on in my con­flicts with the pigs. I dealt with my own problems–directly.”
