Hip-hop/Spirituality/Freethinking. Speaking for all underdogs!
At the age of twenty, Khalil Amani joined a Black Hebrew Israelite sect in Miami, Florida. For five years he endured hell on earth---witnessing and having information about beatings, welfare scams, and murders.
Left spiritually devastated, Khalil left the sect, living a very dysfunctional life---a decadent and promiscuous life---womanizing, drug dealing, exotic dancing-a life filled with lustful tales and shadowy characters---ever shaping his world.
Khalil became the outspoken critic and number one disgruntled ex-member, recounting on TV and in the newspapers the horrors and atrocities committed by the Yahweh sect.
After a trial, in which he was the first of 160 witnesses testifying against Yahweh ben Yahweh, Khalil entered the Federal Witness Security Program, where he gives us a detailed account of the inner-workings of the Program---from someone who's actually been accepted into the government's ultra-secretive identity make-over machine. This is one black man's harrowing tale of survival in urban America---a brutally honest introspection on self, family, sex, race, religion. In the end there is redemption for all! SEE VIDEO BELOW.
