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.
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.
