Exhibition Annotation:
Kevin “Rashid” Johnson is an artist, published writer and the Minister of Defense of the New Afrikan Black Panther Party-Prison Chapter (NABPPPC). Rashid is currently an inmate in Oregon’s Snake River Correctional Institute serving his nineteenth year of a lengthy drug-related sentence. Rashid has taken the lead in challenging and organizing around prison conditions, which include his recent support and participation in the 2011 California prisoners’ hunger strike. He also designed the logo used to represent the strikers. Rashid’s activism has made him a target of prison officials and caused him to be segregated from the general prison population. His writings have also been banned in many California prisons. Kevin Johnson # 19370490 Snake River Correctional Inst. 777 Stanton Blvd. Ontario, OR 97914
