    Quawntay Adams from Break Out Releases Book

    As many of you already know, I recently published my memoir, Chasin’ Freedum. Considering the title, some might assume that the story is a reiteration of my story as revealed in the documentary “Break Out”. But Chasin’ Freedum is about much more than a prisoner escaping prison. It is a story about struggling and overcoming barriers, both internal and external. Some of these barriers are the same barriers that many of you face on a daily basis. After all, the lack of...READ MORE

    12 Years a Slave

    12 years ago, I stood inside Philadelphia’s Federal Detention Center’s (FDC Philadelphia) Receiving and Discharge unit, my mind blurred to the reality in front of me. “What’s your number?!” “6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6!” I reluctantly replied to the correctional overseer as I began to kneel down on the cold concrete slab that served as a bench to get shackled and handcuffed. 6-0-1-2-8-0-6-6 is what I had become, federal property complete with an eight digit bar...READ MORE

    The Time Is Now

    When the moment passes you by you will be surprised. Having allowed yourself to be distracted by so much else you really did not have time for it. Maybe later love. Today’s bad for me. Hey, have you seen my right now? You say searching for it between work and Snapchat interests. “Mommy, can you help me with this?” asks an eager pre-teen begging for attention. “Go play baby. I’ll help you later.” you say intent on watching your favorite Netflix show. Years...READ MORE

    A Letter To A Friend

    “Whenever we decide to change, we meet resistance. We are always challenged to see if we are serious . . . “ -Andrew Matthews A Change of Heart A change of heart is the essence of all other change. The more you find the truth about yourself, the more you will be set free– free from improper evaluations of your worth; free from false pride that seeks to cover recognized flaws. One cannot function at an optimal level with a tired mind and body. At times you need to take time to...READ MORE

    Solutions To The Day-To-Day Struggles Of The People

    I am so sick of watching these programs with these so-called solutions to the violence in impoverished communities, especially in my hometown of Chicago. The people who come up with these solutions live in shiny highrises and fancy and comfortable homes and are out of touch. They do not understand the day-to-day struggles of the people in the communities they speak about. They are so quick to say the primary solution is repairing the broken home or the relationship between police and community,...READ MORE

    Hope for a Better Future this New Year

    I want to say Happy New Year to everyone out there. I pray and hope for a better future with the choices we make. I hope you and your family in bondage get the freedom they deserve. Only God can judge us, right or wrong. I pray and hope we get from underneath the devil’s thumb that keeps us killing our kids and coming back to prison. This year I hope I receive some relief from the courts so I can go home and help lead these kids in a better direction. I want to tell them about the...READ MORE
