The Ohio State Penitentiary (OSP) in Youngstown, Ohio, holds 539 people behind its brick walls, multiple barbed wire fences and iron bars. It is within this dungeon that four of the men known as the Lucasville Five are incarcerated: Bomani Shakur, Adbullah Hasan, Jason Robb and Namir Abdul Mateen. These men are held in a special section of OSP’s death row, awaiting lethal injection for the crime of participating in a rebellion.
