  4. 4. Page 4 of 10my being involved in the Human Rights struggle as theyguided me and supported me when i was focused onissues beyond that of the normal 13-year-old. Theseinfluences were my foundation for the womanaffectionately known now as Mama Khandi. They guidedme with their activism. Queen Mother Moore filedcharges against the u. s. a. of genocide. She workedtirelessly for POW’s and political prisoners. Becauseof her efforts and those of my big sista Nalo, i begansupporting the Black Dragon Unit of the BlackLiberation Army in Tenna. for 22 years until therelease of their Major General Hamisha Halifu Utumwa.This cadre collective crowned me Queen Mother. Hamishawas given a life sentence for fighting back when awhite boy attacked and disrespected his mother. It wasa challenge to gain access to, for and from thesebrothas through the penal system. Revolutionaries aretreated with much more injustice, harshness andimperialism than the average brotha or sista who isincarcerated. i had to use creative ideas and methodsto assist, aid and provide support for these brothas.Thus, gaining my Reverend status, in pertinent part,was a tool for being of service to POW’s and politicalMama Khandi Case SummaryPosted by Coasados AfrikanFamily on Wednesday, February 29, 2012
  5. 5. Page 5 of 10prisoners.Mumia Abu Jamal and i grew up together as We use totalk and share ideas, strategies and ideology. He andI were in the Black Panther Party together, attendedthe same broadcast school and were in Move together.When i would teach my classes in the independentAfrikan school system, i would assign my students tochoose a POW to write to for academic credit. Manystudents chose Mumia. Many chose other brothas andsistas who are POW’s that i am close to like. The listis exhaustive as at one time, i corresponded with asmany as 57 POWs at once! The list includes, but is notlimited to: Veronza Bowers, Mumia, Sundiata Acoli,Meryl Afrika, Jalil Muntaqim, Zolo Azania, MutuluShakur, Ojore Lutalo, Sekou Kambui, Cinque McGee,Russell Maroon Shoats, Albert Woodfox, Ali KhalidAbdullah, Sekou Cinque T.M. Kambui, and many otherswhose names escape me or are too numerous to mentionhere. To say this was a challenging undertaking is anunderstatement at best!Communicating with these brothas and sistas proved toMama Khandi Case SummaryPosted by Coasados AfrikanFamily on Wednesday, February 29, 2012
  6. 6. Page 6 of 10be a hardship as i would write to them and they wouldnot receive the letters for months at a time. Oftenthey would move brothas and sistas from prison toprison without warning to disrupt and strong hold ofelevating the consciousness of the prison populationin any location. Once i heard back from Mumia over 9months after i had written to him. These are the pettytactics the prisons use to break the spirit of thoseincarcerated. The medical care is laughable if itweren’t life-threateningly UN-funny.These brothas and sistas informed me of myPOW/political prisoner status when i was attacked bythe state of ohio and incarcerated in solitaryconfinement for almost 6 months with no medical care(i’m multiply disabled), almost died (losing over halfof my weight). For the first time, i was on the otherside of the coin. Not the one providing care but theone in need of care. Like these bold and courageousfreedom fighters, i survived without compromise. irefused to plea-bargain, while my skin hung off of mybones with deathly weight loss. Upon my arrest, underfraudulent multiple felonies, i was taken to jail,Mama Khandi Case SummaryPosted by Coasados AfrikanFamily on Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Page 7 of 10spat on, hair pulled, head slammed on concrete floor,yanked out of my wheel chair, stripped, taunted,cussed, denied my wheel chair for 5 days, laid in myown urine for 4 days and fed one meal in 24 hours ofbaloney on white bread with cow’s milk. i did what anyrespectable vegan/vegetarian would do: i peed on it!In solitary confinement, i was denied a diabetic diet,food was thrown in the floor and in the trash,commissary was denied, i never saw population and washeld in solitary the entire 6 months i wasincarcerated, was denied medical care, had my diabeticgluco-reading performed ONCE! It took 3 months to havean attorney assigned to me. Much of my mail wasreturned to sender, marked, “DOES NOT EXIST”. Most ofmy phone calls were blocked. One time, my daughter,who was 8 months pregnant, on her birthday, waited inline for 2 hours to see her mother for 15 minutes.Another time, when my daughters visited me, they couldsee the skin hanging off of my bones and knew theirmother was dying in jail. To break the ice, mydaughter who has always thought of herself as too fat,said, “dang mom, if i knew they had the bombMama Khandi Case SummaryPosted by Coasados AfrikanFamily on Wednesday, February 29, 2012

We laughed and were ableto visit without tears and sadness.Long story short, it took THREE YEARS, but i wasacquitted of all criminal charges. i lost everything:my home, good name, income, son, medical coverage,subsidies, freedom, health, etc. And presently, forthe 4th time since these fraudulent charges werebrought against me, i am losing my home that wasdonated to me! The offer has been rescinded. Mydiabetic reading, without funds to control it as i hadbefore the state’s attack against me, is around 449!Yes! A Walking Diabetic coma!
