Malik Rahim (born Donald Guyton in 1948) is a former Black Panther and a long-time housing and prison activist in the U.S. state of Louisiana. Ignoring evacuation orders, Rahim remained in the city of New Orleans through Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Out of the ad hoc relief distribution center set up at his late mother's house in this period, he co-founded the Common Ground Collective which distributed aid and ran a community health clinic with the help of volunteers from across the United States. In 2008, Rahim was honored for his commitment to humanity by being selected as the recipient of Thomas Merton Award.
