(Herman, with wife, Comrade Sister Iyaluua)

Brother Herman Ferguson represents all of us in so many ways – from working man, community organizer, educator, fugitive, husband, comrade, revolutionary, mentor, and leader. Herman played a decisive leadership role in the struggle for community control of NYC school systems of Ocean-Hill Brownsville, Harlem, and the Lower East Side in the late 60's. Brother Herman was one of Malcolm X’s close associates, and a prominent member of Malcolm X's Muslim Mosque Inc., and later one of the founding members of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU); both organizations created by Malcolm 1964. He also helped to organize the Republic of new Afrika and was a member of the Revolutionary Action Movement (RAM).

Baba Herman Ferguson passed away on Sept. 25, 2014 and was memorialized
in North Carolina on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

Herman will also be memorialized in New York at a later date.

Michael Brown & Ferguson –
Jericho Statement of Solidarity
The Lesson and the Plan

The National Jericho Movement to Free all Political Prisoners sends its condolences, prayers and well-wishing to the family, friends and community of Michael Brown.

Michael Brown's Cap Michael Brown Michael Brown Family at Casket

After several centuries of state and racial violence against Black people, the trend of violence, marginalization, discrimination and consequent despair and powerlessness continues.  In the wake of the August 9th police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Black people again are faced with the question of how to move forward in a society that professes freedom and democracy for all. How do Black people gain true freedom from unrelenting repression and recurring violence? True freedom to express themselves in a healthy, wholesome, and natural manner? True freedom from fear and discrimination? True freedom to be productive, self-reliant, and independent?

The lesson is what happens when we fail to take charge, leadership and responsibility for own affairs!? What happens when we systematically fail to stand when needed and to build what's needed!? For what happened to Michael Brown is far too common.

The plan is to unite with other community people and organizations based upon real action, accountability, responsibility, courage, sincerity and vision; to support local leadership in making real change; to participate in this change; to value ourselves in this process of change and development; and to hold ourselves and our leaders accountable.

You can help! Please reference Jericho initiates and events highlighted on our website. You are invited and encouraged to join and participate. 

Remembering Michael Brown and counting – a life not in vain!

We received word on Friday, June 13, 2014 from Ms. LaBorde, Abdullah's Mom, that he has been transferred to Five Points. This is exactly the pattern that Majid was speaking about when we visited him in the SHU at Elmira. Whenever anyone in the Muslim community at Elmira criticizes Mr. Afify, he has them thrown into the SHU on bogus charges and then transferred out to another prison.

Elmira, NY, May 24, 2014

From Abdullah Majid:

First, I want to say all praise belongs to Allah. And I thank Him for His Blessings upon me.

I want to thank everyone who has continued the fight to assure I received the surgery needed. I finally got it on May 20, 2014. I’m very sore, as you can imagine, but otherwise my prognosis looks good.

Now I am fighting to get released from SHU and put back into general population. So your support is still needed.

Also, I am appealing to the Muslim community in particular to continue to call and write to Imam Ahmad at Central Office DOCCS to demand the removal of Chaplain Afify at Elmira Correctional Facility.

Don’t give up the fight!

In Jihad,


We need to call and write to DOCCS Commissioner Anthony Annucci and Five Points Superintendent Michael Sheahan to demand that Abdullah Majid #83A0483 be removed from SHU and returned to general population.
