From the start, Noah never had chance.

He recalled being held back in the third grade for not knowing how to read. The teacher never questioned if he was dyslexic, even when he spelled his name "HAON".

Feelings of nothingness assaulted him every time he saw a criminal reflected inside of him. His temper was just like his Dad's; every black man in America was atoning for the White Man's Lie.

Black [x].

He joined the panther party in the summer of '69. He wanted to help kids like him. "BLACK POWER" to him meant uplifting castaways, Saints in disguise.
