Bartholomew is a very strict follower of the Nation of Islam, and tries to deter Janae from running in her track clothes. He also seems to resort to violence when he can and hits Janae for stating she is considering dropping her beliefs.
Bartholomew has a circular head. He is African-American with short black hair. He dresses very smartly.
Before Janae's incarceration
Bartholomew and Layla sent Janae to a public elementary school.
In the flashback, Bartholomew speaks with Janae and his wife, Layla, about their daugther's potential scholarship in track. Being a conservative Muslim, he forbids her from continuing any further with the sport if it required her to expose her skin. His wife protests that this would open up more opportunities for Janae, especially since she is a black woman. When Janae says that Allah may not be her god, he slaps her across the face. It is hinted he showed a little remorse after this judging by his facial expression. ("Trust No Bitch")
It is unknown what happened to Bartholomew after this.
