Otis Johnson went to imprison at 25 years old. When he got out at 69, he rejoined a world that was obviously not the same as the one he recollected. This is his story.
A year ago, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City protect for ex-convicts. Everybody there was endeavoring to recover their feet on the ground. Otis had quite recently escaped jail subsequent to serving a 44-year sentence. The last time he had seen his family was May 1975.
When we shared Otis' first story of being reintroduced to the cutting edge world, watchers were astonished by exactly how new everything was to him. iPhones, Times Square, jugs of pre-blended nutty spread and jam ... everything was new or distinctly extraordinary.
Intelligent: My life following 44 years in jail. The narrative of Otis Johnson
His story obviously reverberated with individuals. In excess of 12 million individuals watched Otis' story on YouTube, and we needed to demonstrate to them what occurred straightaway.
We went to Asbury Stop, in New Jersey, with Otis to endeavor to discover them. Reconnecting with family was something he had said he was constantly inspired by doing, yet hadn't got round to yet. All things considered, he was all the while figuring out how to explore the city. He had a little box where he kept old, worn out photographs of relatives, however that was essentially all the data he had on them.
"The main location I truly have is Asbury Stop," Otis let us know. So we took the prepare to Asbury Stop not knowing much.
Be that as it may, we had Otis' memory. When we touched base at the prepare station and started meandering the roads, little things about his old home gradually returned to him: more distant family individuals, companions, shops. He needed to discover his close relative, Dottie Moore, and some other relatives. He said many would likely think he was dead.
When we conversed with Otis about his association with his family, his answers were confounded. He was an individual from the Product of Islam (the paramilitary wing of Country of Islam, the Islamic religious development once broadly driven by Malcom X) in his more youthful days. The Country of Islam's expressed objectives were to enhance the profound, mental, social, and monetary state of African Americans. Otis was an ardent Muslim who said he helped "tidy up the avenues" of street pharmacists.
"We wasn't all terrible," he would state.
However, Otis said a portion of his relatives didn't purchase that. He didn't know whether they would be irate or glad to see him after so long away. He had an anxious vitality about him as we strolled down Pine Road, thumping on entryways and getting some information about Dottie Moore.
This last story on Otis Johnson is one of reconnection and compromise. It is the narrative of a man on a mission to rejoin with leftovers of his past and one, we trust, many can identify with.

In 1999 Hussain Sadiqi fled the remote mountains of central Afghanistan as the Taliban stepped up their violent persecution of the Hazara people. This was to be the start of Hussain’s epic 20,000km journey to Australia. 10 years later, this self confessed ‘nomad’ is about to give up his new life in his new country to pursue a life long dream - a dream that was born over 20 years ago, when a young Hussain first saw a torn and battered picture of his life long hero, Bruce Lee.
