Shakespear1 is the pen name of Abdur-Rahim Khalil. He writes, "My parents gave me another name when I was born. A name I have chosen to relinguish, not because of any misdeed on their part, but because they were ignorant of my true name and my true heritage. They were ignorant of my heritage because they had no knowledge of their own heritage, along with millions of blacks brought to the wilderness of North America. I was born on September 10th., in 1941, at Freedmans Hospital, which has been renamed Howard Hospital. When I was about 4, my parents divorced and I moved to New York with my father. When I was six, my father remarried. I moved back to Washington 36 years later, which is where I live now. I was married and I am a father to seven children, my youngest being three years old. Her name is DESTINY MICHELLE KHALIL. I have always had the desire to write and have written, but I have always been too lazy to persist. This is a final opportunity for me to get to work and with your help maybe I can release the writer in me."
