Richard Mafundi Lake was a long-time organizer against racist police brutality in Alabama. He was sentenced in 1983 under Alabama’s Habitual Offender Act to life in prison.

Richard has been locked up since September 19, 2001 for allegedly creating a security hazard by writing anti-American propaganda on the black board during an Islamic service. However, Richard has stated that he was leading a discussion regarding reparations for Black people for enslavement and centuries of injustices.

Richard may be one of the only people still imprisoned as a consequence of anti-islamic hysteria after 9/11 that had nothing to do with any “terrorist” attacks on the U.S.
