Sadiq and Justin were featured on the “Back to School” podcast to speak about the impact of Islam on incarcerated people in America and the making of the documentary, The Honest Struggle.
“American Muslims have long participated in the struggle against mass incarceration, and this Ramadan, we speak to three people who can help us make sense of where things stand now. First, we talk to Sadiq Davis on his reentry journey through Muslim communities in Chicago and L.A. after 25 years in prison. Then, Justin Mashouf, the filmmaker who captured Sadiq’s story in the documentary “The Honest Struggle,” talks to us about prison reform and telling Sadiq’s story with mercy and compassion. Finally, we talk to Dr. Suad Abdul-Khabeer about Believer’s Bailout, a community-led effort to bail out Muslims in pretrial incarceration and ICE custody as a form of zakat.”
Sadiq was featured on WGN Chicago’s “People to People” April 13th, 2019 speaking about The Honest Struggle.
Sadiq and I spoke with Salim Kassam of The Muslim Vibe about Sadiq’s journey from gang-leader to Muslim reformer.
