Yesterday, the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center filed a lawsuit on behalf of prisoner Kwame Jamal Teague.
Teague is a Humanist who’s currently serving time at Lanesboro Correctional Institution in Polkton, North Carolina. He would like to gather with fellow Humanists just like Christians and Jews do behind bars, but prison officials won’t let him. Furthermore, the lawsuit says, they won’t even let Teague official identify as a Humanist. (He’s currently listed as “Muslim,” the faith he had growing up.)
