Back to Red Onion State Prison: My Return to the Original Scene of Criminal Abuse

As of June 16, 2018, Rashid is back in Virginia, at Red Onion State Prison. We’ll leave it to Rashid to explain the context of this move and what has been going on with him; suffice to say that he continues to be targeted by prison officials due to his writings about abuse in prison. Please drop him a line and let him know you’re thinking of him:

Speculative fiction has a long history of creating stories that challenge our assumptions about what is possible. Some say that this makes it a natural tool for aiding social justice movements.
