About Naquan26

Welcome readers and bloggers to Justices For All, my name is Naquan and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm currently a college undergraduate attending New York City College of Technology for Law and Paralegal Studies. I plan on getting a bachelors and master degree from my current college and one day owning my own business. In my spear time I like to study chess read novels and meditate. The reason I decided to start a blog is to raise awareness for prisoners who can't speak out about the injustice taking place within the New York State Prisons. Martian Luther King Jr. once said "injustices anywhere is a threat to justices everywhere." I would like to use my knowledge of the law and discuss current topics going on with the prions systems today. Feel free to leave me a message or email me at

This photo was captured in Squibb Park Northwest of New York City College of Technology on Middagh St. between Columbia Heights & Furman St. In recognition of Dr. Edward Robinson Squibb this park was built to honor his achievements in the pharmaceuticals industry. Its magnificent views of Lower Manhattan, the Hudson River, and bungee cord bridge attracts tourists and locals alike. There is a peaceful harmony about Squibb Park that sets my mind at ease, particularly the garden and the serenity  of the trees.


This photo was captured inside the African Burial Ground Museum located at 290 Broadway, New York, it depicts a women and child attending the funereal service of a decedent. The museum uses sculptures to  illustrate how a burial would look back in the 18th-century. Visiting this museum was a tremendous experience which provided a lot of insight about my history.


In 1991 the United States General Service Administration (GSA) purchased a plot of land with the intentions for construction of a 34-story office building located in Lower Manhattan adjacent to the Ted Weiss Federal Building. Historical maps indicated this site may have been an 18th-century African Burial ground. Prior to GSA making this purchase archaeologist conducted an excavation of the land which led to the finding of roughly 400 African men, women, and children skeletal remains. After making this discovery an investigation concluded this was an actual grave site for free and enslaved Africans during the 17th and 18th centuries.  For more information on this story click the link below the picture.



According to the Rhode Island Freemasonry website ( “Thomas Oxnard – Provincial Grand Master of New England and Grand Master of Massachusetts – granted the petition for the constitution of St. John’s Lodge of Newport, December 27, 1749, the first in the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.” Eight years later the soon to be state of Rhode Island got its fist Grand Lodge.

While taking a tour around downtown Providence I ran across a tunnel with pictures on the wall. At the center of this tunnel, there was a glass ceiling that allowed the sunlight to shine inside and illuminate the pictures on the wall. Children at a nearby elementary school  painted these pictures, so that people who lost a love one in the tragic moments of 9-11 have a place to visit. The name of this place is called the “Wall of Hope.”

For my birthday I took a trip to Providence, Rhode Island, to visit Brown University and tour the city. While I was touring the city this Statue captured my attention because it seem like a patriotic  symbol. After taking this photo and doing some research, I found out this monument was built to commemorate 39,000 Rhode Island citizens for taking part in the Korean War. I’ve provided a link for the website that has more information about this Statue and some interesting facts about the Korean War( According to the website “The Korean war is known as the Forgotten War” and “PFC. John B Colman Jr. – US Marine Corps was the last Rhode Islander who died in action.” Feel free to click on the link above and checkout more information about this statue and the Korean War.
