1960s black militant H. Rap Brown challenging imprisonment

The 75-year-old inmate, who converted to Islam and now goes by the name Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, gained prominence more than 50 years ago as a Black Panthers leader who famously said, "Violence is as American as cherry pie."

Rap Brown who was convicted of killing Fulton County Sheriff's Deputy Ricky Kinchen and wounding Deputy Aldranon English in a shootout in March 2000, is challenging his imprisonment, saying his constitutional rights were violated at trial.

SOA Rap Brown was one of the black men that I really admired during the Civil Rights Movement. He was one of the first black men that I saw who wasn't afraid to speak his mind to America about racism and white people. I had an album of him. But things seemed to change for Rap Brown after the Civil Rights Movement. He robbed a bar and he just faded from the radar. Then he shot and killed a black deputy who was trying to serve him a warrant in Atlanta. I just think that years probably police surveillance and monitoring made him paranoid. His story is tragic.

You can skip rocks across water but if you're not building yourself up rock solid, you'll drown under pressure.
