A Letter From Kairi Al-Amin
I begin with the greeting of peace, As-Salaamu Alaikum,
I hope all is well and thank you for you time. As you may know, my father Imam Jamil Al-Amin, formerly civil rights leader and humanitarian H. Rap Brown, was convicted of murder in 2002.
My father's conviction and subsequent exile was a vendetta realized and much like the man himself, the truth about this case and his legacy have been erased from public view…until now.
After years of appeals and protests from us, his friends, family and supporters, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on May 3rd, 2019 in Atlanta, GA. This hearing will determine whether we receive a new trial and we would love to see you there.
Leading up to May 3rd, I am raising funds for my father’s awareness campaign. The campaign will feature a documentary (end of the year) with distribution (Netflix or Youtube preferred), celebrity endorsers, a social media campaign, interviews, a record and music video, awareness events around the country, radio + print advertising and influencer marketing.
While this is exciting, I know that we cannot fight this fight alone. We were forced to try this case in the dark once...we will not allow that this time. We need the the public engaged and we need them to have the whole story if we want fairness. Most importantly, we need your assistance to make this possible.
We have 30 days to Raise $50,000.00 and with everyone’s assistance, we are confident.
That being said, even a small contribution helps.
We have partnered with Kickstarter for this campaign. To make a contribution or for more information click here.
Lastly, please share this campaign on your social media channels. We need and appreciate all of the support we can get.
Thanks again for your time and consideration.
Attorney & Son of Imam Jamil Al-Amin FKA H. Rap Brown
