Abdul Majid, beloved son, father and grandfather and long held u.s. political prisoner, died today, Sunday, April 3, 2016. Abdul was imprisoned for more than three decades due to targeting by the FBI COINTELPRO program which sought to eliminate leaders of the Black Panther Party and other radical Black organizations.
Abdul is well-known and respected for his work with the Lifer’s Organization both inside and out the New York State Department of Corrections for facilitating classes, his teachings, leadership and counseling skills. In addition, he was active in prison helping young males to cope with long sentences, conduct legal research and providing civics training. Abdul is survived by loving family including his mother, children, grandchildren and even a few great-grandchildren. Abdul’s mother, Mrs. LaBorde, is legendary in her love for her son, regularly making the long trek to visit him despite her advanced age of 91.
There is an emergency fund to assist the family with help cover the costs of his Janazah, the Arabic term for a Muslim funeral, expenses. Please donate at:
More information will be posted about Majid’s death, his the funeral and additional details as we get them. Much love, Family.
