Rev. Miniard Culpepper
Rev. Miniard Culpepper, 53, is in the 14th day of a fast that he began shortly after the murder of one of his church members, gang peacemaker Jahmol Norfleet . Norfleet, a former leader of the H-Block gang in Roxbury, was shot twice in the head on Nov. 28 outside his grandmother's house, where he lived. He had served a year in prison on a firearms charge, but since his release last summer had turned his life around, working toward gang peace and his high school equivalency degree, while holding down two jobs. He had also joined Culpepper's Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Dorchester. Culpepper, who led the funeral services at his church, could not eat much the day following Norfleet's death. On Nov. 30, he decided to make it official: He would fast until Norfleet's killer was arrested. It's two weeks since Culpepper has had solid food. He is subsisting on a drink he mixes up: fresh lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup ("It's more pure"), a little liquid cayenne pepper, and water. He has been drinking three liters a day and is feeling all right, though he went to his doctor earlier this week for pains in his side. "He told me to keep in touch if the pain doesn't go away," says Culpepper. The doctor, a childhood friend, "knows I'm not going to give this up." Culpepper, whose grandfather and father were also preachers, emphasizes that this is a spiritual, not a political, act.
