RENAISSANCE RENEWED: THE AUTHOR ACTIVIST, THE TEACHER MENTOR, AND THE POET ARTIST.



With origins spanning the country from Arkansas and New Mexico, a Southern breeze has deposited Atlanta something new, but with an old world flair; a true Renaissance man.  Ahmariah K. Jackson


Early in his childhood, he found a love hidden in a thing called language.  Words spoken, printed and heard ignited a curiosity of redesign. Armed with fables and follies and simple Reference materials, his journey began.  He would not only learn all that he could about his new love, but he would one day redesign it in his own way. And he has.

As life teaches us all, Ahmariah was forced to learn a harsh reality due to what he calls a result of gullible decisions. This provided him with inspiration and fodder for his first book, Locked Up But Not Locked Down: A Guide To Surviving The American Prison System. This work is a cautionary tale about the myths of the fast life and easy money filled with Functional advice/testimonials to aid in self-rehabilitation and re-entry into society. It has become his mission to bring to the forefront, discussions of the geopolitical efforts to prevent future incarcerations and promote personal rehabilitation
