Chapter Excerpt – Walking While Black

…..I started a new blog that for excerpts of chapters of the book I’m writing. None are complete chapters and there are more to come. For those who have been to http://mynameisjamie.net you know that i write about a man in prison and post many of his letters written to me over the years. He had already spent a number of years in solitary confinement which were brutal. They threw him back in 3 months go and wanted to ship him to a prison far away whenit was time to let him out but they said the had NO OPEN BUNKS! He had to cause more intentional trouble. He threatened a guard, took him to ICC, an internal court to force them to keep him there in solitary I instead of moving him and making it impossible for anyone to visit him.

This is one of the chapter excerpts. If you want to know why they locked him up in the first place read “Fantasy Crime” . Leave your email address at mynameisjamie2.gmail.com if you would like to be on the book mailing list. Many thanks.
