Sayyid Abdur-Rahman, 54, a Hamden firefighter and father of Douglas, 32 and Zakiyah Taylor, 14, a Betsy Ross Magnet School student, said he had good examples of fatherhood in his family as he was growing up.
"I've had some good examples in my family of fatherhood, and being a father is extremely important for us, particularly, in the African American community, because of the high incarceration rate among black men," said Abdur-Rahman, who is also an Islamic Chaplain at Whalley Avenue Correction Center.
Nearly 1 million of the total 2.3 million incarcerated people in this country are black, or a rate that is six times that of whites, according to the NAACP racial disparities incarceration report at www.naacp.org. The site noted blacks and Hispanics comprised 58 percent of all prisoners in 2008, though blacks and Hispanics make up about one quarter of the nation's population.
"I view being a father as a blessing Allah has given me, because everyone can't be a father," Abdur-Rahman said.
