Quame Omar Mackabie

Meet 53 year old Quame, who has lived on the streets of Boston since 1974. He prides himself on his vast knowledge of the world which he learned not just from his experiences, but from his extensive reading of Freud, Plato, and other philosophical greats. He says this of his findings: “I am not supposed to know this. I am not supposed to have this. I am supposed to be poor, black, and oppressed. I am not drugs, I am not alcohol, I am not crime. Free your mind and everything else will follow.”
