The Forgotten Imam: Jamil Abdullah Al Amin (H. Rap Brown)

I met Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin in the West End Atlanta Masjid in the fall of 1998 ... My son, a friend of his and I spent the better part of two days visiting the Imam. We talked about the past and future of our country, and of African Americans and our experiences in great detail. The Imam was candid, very clear on his views of what would lead to a brighter future for America, African-Americans, and Muslims specific. I learned that He and I had very strong connections to a few people in St. Louis, Missouri ... a city I spent a great deal of my youth and summers growing up in. We spoke of some of those relations, and instantly I became very close to the Imam. The thing that stays with me however, is my sons comment while leaving the Masjid (house of worship) ... he said: "dad he is nothing like the books portrayed him as H Rap Brown or even the Imam Jamil Al-Amin. Even I can tell ... that is a special,, and good man. My son was eighteen years old and on his way to Alexandria, Virginia to start his senior year of high school. I believe like my son ... this is a good man who deserves to be free ... and never forgotten.
