Bio: Neville Adams
I am an alumnus of the University of the District of Columbia with degrees in English. As an instructor in Prince George's County Public Schools for almost twenty years, I have found that it is my destiny to mold children for excellence and along the way make lifelong contacts and build positive energy.
Family is extremely important and I have three lovely daughters who have been raised with thousands of surrogate siblings that have graced my classroom. I specialize in English and African American Literature, Creative Writing, Public Speaking, International Literature, and Student Leadership.
Knowing that literature is life, I bring life lessons and global theory to my poetry, fiction writing, and essays. As an activist, educator, poet, mediator, and narrator, I am one who stands firm on my beliefs. Justice, peace, equality, and balance are concepts I feel strongly about, hence; guide the totality of my existence.
I specialize in literature analysis, social commentary, and creative writing and believe in creating pathways that others may follow. As the Founder of the "Phoenix Medina Writer's Project Inc." non profit organization and the writing group "Lyrikal Storm," I have succeeded in giving teenagers and adults a voice in society and the wherewithal to tackle obstacles with intellectual prowess. My work has expanded to writing sub groups at Howard University, Maryland Eastern Shore, Prince George's, Montgomery, and Elizabeth City Community College.
I am a "Poet in Residence" in Prince George's County and have been recognized by official proclamation from the Mayor of Riverdale Park for “Excellence in Education and Community Transformation.” I have also been elected Prince George's County Delegate of the Maryland State and National Educator's Associations for over a decade. My first book, "Lights in The City" is a snapshot into the lives of what I deem the dilemma of the "urban intellectual," a term I penned to define one who juxtaposes the brute survival of urban life with the intellectual challenges of the scholarly sect. I recently published, "Chasing Rainbows" which focuses on the social, political, and economic forays of the global spectrum.
