Johnson, Kevin Rashid # 264847
Kevin “Rashid” Johnson was born in 1971 in Richmond, VA. He is a social prisoner who was first imprisoned in 1990. Throughout his early imprisonment he distinguished himself for resisting the abuses of himself and his peers by prison guards. Beginning in 2001 Rashid became politicized while incarcerated and as a result he became active in writing about and publicizing the abuses within U.S. prisons. Rashid became an accomplished political theoretician, organizer, and artist. He co-founded the New Afrikan Black Panther Party (NABPP), which he later helped reconstitute as the Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party (RIBPP).
