    Bear Witness to America’s Massacre

    It was seven when I heard the sirens I had to get away, but my legs wouldn’t move. I was running nowhere fast. Suddenly, I was face down. 1, 2, 3 officers hard tackled, knee in my back, arms wrestled behind me. My rights were never read; was told I had none. To take another man’s life is said to be the most egregious sin, and so is the denial of justice. Head mushed down, cop car door slammed shut. “We got ’em Capt!” Mistaken identity, my guilt...READ MORE

    Al Hatley

    I am Alan Hatley aka AlCapWes. I am 61-years-young. I am a prisoner being held at the old Illinois state penitentiary (Stateville) in Joliet, Illinois. I’m serving a LIFE sentence for Murder and Home Invasion. I’ve been locked up since November 6, 1989. I’m from the city of Chicago, a neighborhood called K-Town, located in the city’s 24th Ward known as North Lawndale, 60623, where I have no street affiliations. Now, looking back over my life, I can see with clear...READ MORE

    Beloved: What Is Our Plan of Action?

    Dear Beloved, With love and solidarity I send this missive because I know you are confused, disillusioned and in fear at the election of Donald J. Trump as Amerikkka’s President. Thousands of you have taken to the streets in major cities to protest the election result, and although confined to this cage I hear you. I feel you. The world hears you and feels you too. But the one chump you want to hear and feel you, does not. He is deaf and genuinely could care less. Trump and all his...READ MORE

    Donald Trump: What now?

    Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, everyone is asking: What now? Will he build the wall? Will he load all of the Mexicans onto a freight train like chattel and ship them back across the border? Will he ban Muslims? Will he finish what Reagan and Clinton started and build more prisons for young black men? Who knows what Trump will do– probably better than the rest. But it’s likely he will do what all presidents do when in office– make the...READ MORE

    4 Keys to Enrich Your Life

    From an Illinois state prison, Mark Dixon suggests four keys to enrich your life. 1- Ask yourself often: How is my relationship with God? Does it motivate me in useful ways? Is it leading me in a path that aligns with true spiritual teaching? 2- Ask yourself often: Does my presence in life serve a purpose for anyone other than me? 3- Ask yourself often: Are the relationships in my life healthy? Are the people in my circle really for me? 4- Ask honestly: Do I have a healthy relationship with...READ MORE

    President-elect Donald Trump

    Donald Trump as President is going to be very interesting. Too bad our lives are ones to be played with. This nation will be even further divided than it already was. The white supremacist groups are already showing signs of aggression toward others. In order to deal with this reality the black community must stop shooting each other and build on the strength we have left. Many in this country are angry because a black man became President of a white nation and now White America wants their...READ MORE

    Criminal Justice Reform Beyond 2016

    The holidays are approaching and still the U.S. Congress has yet to move or act on any agenda surrounding prison reform. Criminal (prison) and social reform has become race and class-based issues that seem to be off “the radar” for most politicians who only give lip service to its importance. For many of us who are affected by Congress’ persistent inaction, times like these have become all too familiar and frustrating. The War on Drugs lives on, destroying minority...READ MORE

    When does forgiveness begin and dehumanization stop?

    “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Johan Wolfgang von Goethe “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” -Hebrews 13:13 I want to take a moment to define I’ve shared a quote in a previous post by my friend and author J. Doyle what is meant by dehumanization- to divest of human qualities or personality.  This process...READ MORE

    If not now, when? After We’ve Lost Another Brother?

    Friends and family celebrate America’s Massacre 2016 In the Margins Top Nonfiction Book Award. How many do we have to lose before we wake up and realize none of what is happening is life? We speak of togetherness, unity, brotherhood, solidarity. What is the meaning if we continue to ignore the actions which constitute each. There are not different degrees of keeping your brother. There is only one way – with everything you have. The reason I decided to write this post is because I...READ MORE
