My Honors and Recognition goes out to Ricky “Freeway” Ross. After having his life sentence overturned, Rick was released from federal prison in 2009. Since then Rick has not recidivated. He speaks at schools, teaches classes on Economics and is currently mentoring other, about the principle it require be successful the right way.

I first met Rick back in Lompoc in 2000, he was always trying to show guys with the hustler spirit that the game wasn’t the only means to make it in the world. He taught classes on credit, provided tennis lesson and was a positive voice when one needed validation about the value of positive change. We use to build in the cell about the development of his move script, how he envisioned his the sound track and family values. I learned allot from Rick while he was incarcerated, things that would lead me toward the man I am today. I learned the strength of humility, self worth vs. the worth of a principle, a true leader leads by example and he inspired me to write my first movie script. To see Rick succeeding in the world in the manner in which he is doing now makes me proud. It proves that no matter where we come from, what we lack, what mistakes we’ve made or who we use to be. A man is and will always be the true captain of his ship and the deciding factor to whether his ship will sink, crash or find his paradise where all things are possible.
Rick you are a convict, scholar and a gentlemen who is worthy of recognition. I wish you well Loveone keep doing what your doing and God Bless.


Much Love and Respect, Demond A. Jackson

Demond Jackson
As you can see my name is Demond Andrae Jackson. My comrades and Love one's call me D-jay. I'm the co-founder of Convicted Soap Box, and the MENSTOP!/GIRL...STOP! re-entry programs. I consider myself a literary artist, be it poetry, editorials, composition, music or screenplays "My my power and words are my weapons..."
I'm the son of an African American queen, born and raised in Los Angeles California, where I was groomed in its infectious gang culture. For the past decade and half, the federal Bureau of Prison has been a institution of self-education, self-evaluation and the reason I now possess knowledge of self. That being so, I now strive to expose the solution to the problems that our plaguing our communities, America's youth and this country as a whole. There's a saying: "There's nothing new up under the sun." Simply put, if there's one thing in this universe existence, that has seen all thing that mankind has done or not done, it is the sun. That means the moral dissension that taking place currently is nothing new. Historian have written about times where the moral fabric of a nation was so tattered where the only solution for change was war a destruction. This country was built and establish to be the nation it is today. By the disenfranchised, those who were being oppressed by the Queen and her fellow Aristocrats. Therefore if this country is to change once again for the better. It will begin and must begin with the actions and the voice of the disenfranchised i.e, America's minorities, poor and it's third class citizen the American Ex-felon. That being said I'm committed to "WRITING MY WRONGS..." and sewing seed of knowledge and truth that will blossom into peace, prosperity and positive change
