Michael Reed Dorrough

My name is Michael Reed Dorrough. I have used The Swahili name Zaharibu (Zah) since the 1970's. I am 67 years old. I have lived in the Watts section of Los Angeles since 1968. A lot of my family resides in Los Angeles County today. I have been imprisoned since 1985 for a murder that I did not  commit. I spend as much time as I can listening to jazz, trying to learn about the world that I live in, and contributing to changing it. You are welcome to write to me at Michael Reed Dorrough #D83611 SATF, 11, B3-6-4L P.O. Box 5248 Corcoran, CA. 93212
