Greg Curry- In my own words

My name is Greg Curry; I was serving time at Ohio's Maximum Security Prison (Lucasville) on April 11th, 1993 when a major disturbance on L-side began. Many will recall Waco Texas during that time.

I was 29 years old. My interest was going home, sports, hustling and exercising, nothing more of less, no gangs, groups or religious affiliation, nothing to prove to my peers. Therefore, no serious disciplinary issues. My job was a Recreation Aide.

Siddique Abdullah Hasan Biography

Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan, R130-559
Ohio State Penitentiary
878 Coitsville-Hubbard Road
Youngstown, Ohio  44505

Like many other African-American children in the Unites States, Siddique Abdullah Hasan was raised by a single parent and lacked parental supervision and guidance that would steer him into manhood.  But, despite emanating from a dysfunctional family, having an extensively troubled upbringing and only acquiring a microscopic amount of training in formal education, through sheer grits and determination Imam Hasan has pulled himself up by his bootstraps by surrendering his entire existence to Allah, by managing to obtain a college education, and by becoming a staunch activist and revolutionary.
