Christopher E Brooks Remembered by Jessie MDY Phillips


In January of 2016 someone I knew was murdered by the state of Alabama. His name was Chris Brooks and he was in my Book Club. We didn’t talk much about life, we talked about books.

Derrick Mason Remembered by Randy Lewis


Derrick Mason was a breakfast runner when I arrived on death row back in 2007….We cliqued real well, we instantly became friends. We talked and laughed about any and everything. I had no family support, but every time Derrick caught store he purchased me something. He allotted me a few of his work days so that I would be able to have extra food to eat. Derrick became my first brother here on Life Row.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 4.19.17

While we and the rest of the world watching the unfolding horror in Arkansas, hoping that our friends have used their voices to speak out, we have also been keeping our focus on Alabama. As you know we have 2 upcoming executions and we also have a new Governor. While we have yet to find out about Governor Ivey’s stand on clemency we firmly believe that she has to be more evolved than her predecessor who stated that he would never grant clemency.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 3.29.17

Under the able leadership of our Chairman the Board has begun to take a closer look at our history. Over the past 28 years we have had leaders who could be the envy of any free world organization. And yes, we have stories to tell, amazing stories and we are determined to tell them. We want to tell them so that we do not forget our history and the men who are no longer with us and also so we might learn from them and be inspired. We are proud and grateful to our trailblazers and founding fathers.
