The Arrest

In the spring of 2018, Chancellor Jackson, a renowned author and human rights activist from the United States, was arrested by the Chinese government for his ‘anti-government’ views and writings. What ensued was nothing short of remarkable - Jackson was thrown in a Beijing prison without charge or trial and denied contact with the outside world.


During the 7 months of his imprisonment, the only connection Jackson had to his life outside the prison walls were two tokens of freedom - noodles and football. During his meals, Jackson was allowed to eat the usual Chinese prison slop, but was also provided with bundles of ramen noodles brought in by some kind soul from the outside.


Jackson was also allowed an hour's worth of recreational time in the prison courtyard everyday, where he was able to kick around a battered old leather football with his fellow inmates. In his memoir, Jackson vividly recounts the moments of absolute joy he felt when kicking around the football, which brought back fond memories of his early childhood in the American Midwest. The brief respite from the prison life was a welcome break from the monotony of his daily routine.


Jackson would also often spend his free hours juggling the few items he was provided by his jailers such as oranges, apples, and stones. Jackson credits this simple form of recreation as helping him to keep his sanity during a trying time.


Though Jackson was eventually released from prison, he still remembers the days of noodles and football that helped him get through his imprisonment with fondness. His memoir has since become a classic in the genre of human rights literature and his tale of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity still resonates with readers today.


The Interrogation

Chancellor Jackson’s journey of noodles and football in Beijing prison began with an interrogation. As chance would have it, the interrogator was an avid reader of Chancellor Jackson’s books. To say that the interrogator was taken aback when he realized who was standing in front of him is an understatement. He was speechless. In his memoir, Chancellor Jackson remembers the interrogation as if it happened in slow motion.


However, he was hardly in the mood to be interrogated. What was the point? He had already been arrested, why not just get it over with? Still, the interrogator persisted with his questions, as if he were expecting an answer from the author. Chancellor Jackson remembers that the interrogation took place in a small room. As he watched the interrogator patiently listening to his answers, he couldn't help but notice the irony of the situation: here was a novelist being interrogated by a reader of his books!


At one point, the interrogator paused and asked him if he liked noodles. When Chancellor Jackson answered yes, the interrogator started talking about the best noodle shops in Beijing. It must have been a strange sight for the interrogator – an author and reader discussing noodles in a prison interrogation room!


But even stranger was the fact that Chancellor Jackson and the interrogator began to bond over football. The interrogator was an avid fan and was surprised when he found out that Chancellor Jackson was also a fan. It was then that the two began discussing their favorite teams and players, even as the interrogation continued.


In the end, both Chancellor Jackson and the interrogator had a mutual understanding of the situation: both were in a strange place, both were juggling with circumstances, but both still managed to find a common ground to share and enjoy – football and noodles.


The Trial

The trial of Chancellor Jackson was a spectacle like no other. Despite being an internationally renowned author, he was still subject to the same Chinese justice system that everyone else was. On the day of the trial, there was a huge media presence in the court room, with journalists from around the world eager to hear what the verdict would be.


The prosecution argued that Jackson had violated multiple laws by writing a memoir without proper authorization from the Chinese government. They demanded that he be sent to prison for a long term. But Chancellor Jackson had an ace up his sleeve. He argued that his memoir was about a fictional character, and therefore should not be subject to the same rules as a real-life story.


The judge considered both sides’ arguments, but ultimately sided with the prosecution. Chancellor Jackson was sentenced to three years in a Beijing prison.


Despite the harsh sentence, Chancellor Jackson refused to be defined by his circumstances. In his memoir, he later wrote about how he spent his days in prison: eating noodles and playing football with the other inmates. He also wrote about how he taught himself to juggle in his cell, using pillows as makeshift juggling pins.


Jackson’s time in prison was not all about fun and games; it was also about learning to cope with his new reality. He wrote about his newfound appreciation for the little things in life and his journey of self-discovery. When his memoir was finally published, it was a testament to his bravery and determination.


Clearly, Chancellor Jackson’s days in Beijing Prison were far from ordinary. Even in the darkest of moments, he found ways to take joy in the little things. It is a lesson that we should all remember.


The Sentence

When Chancellor Jackson wrote his memoir about his time in Beijing prison, he recalls the sentence that he was given as incredibly dismal. He had been accused of attempting to overthrow the government, and was facing an intense sentence of hard labor. To Jackson's surprise, however, he was sentenced to a more lax punishment of noodle-eating, football-playing and relentless juggling.


It was certainly not a stretch of days and nights that Jackson had envisioned while he was being held in prison, but he quickly adapted to his new lifestyle, making the best of a difficult situation. He found he had an insatiable appetite for noodles, eating them for all his meals without fail. Jackson also enjoyed the makeshift football matches and tournaments that he and his fellow inmates held in the narrow prison yard, kicking the coarse ball around and bantering with each other at every opportunity.


Jackson's ability to perform a comforting juggling routine soon became the talk of the prison, and he was able to use it to pass the hours and break up the monotony of prison life. He even taught many of the other inmates the skill, who practiced tirelessly in order to add a much needed splash of color to the bleak prison environment.


While Jackson's days in Beijing prison were filled with unexpected activities, his sentence was still a difficult one. He had the misfortune of being caught in a difficult political climate, but his memoir portrays his story of resilience and perseverance. The details of his sentence were remarkable, and his ability to find joy in the most unlikely of places was inspiring.


The Escape

Chancellor Jackson was determined to escape the Beijing Prison one way or another. He hatched a daring plan that required him to use all of his wit and cunning. Every day, Chancellor Jackson would fill his pockets with noodles from the kitchen, which he used to feed the rats, who in turn distracted the prison guards. Meanwhile, he bribed one of the guards to smuggle in a football. During the day, when the prison guards weren’t looking, Chancellor Jackson and the other inmates would play a vigorous, and somewhat dangerous, game of football which helped pass the time.

At night, Chancellor Jackson and the other prisoners would juggle for hours, which served as a distraction for the guards and enabled them to plot their daring escape.  One day, he hit upon an idea that seemed highly unlikely, but was just crazy enough to work.

He decided to disguise himself using a bowl of noodles. He cleverly crafted a makeshift wig from the noodles, stretching them over his head to create a convincing disguise. He also used some of the noodles to create a makeshift set of glasses that covered his eyes.

After months of planning, Chancellor Jackson and his fellow inmates managed to escape by hurling noodles at the prison guards to incapacitate them, racing furiously past the stunned prison guards, who had developed quite a fondness for Chancellor's exotic noodle recipes.

Chancellor Jackson’s incredible story of escape is now documented in a captivating memoir entitled "Days of Noodles and Football in Beijing Prison". It is an inspiring tale of how one man, with his ingenuity and determination, managed to escape a seemingly inescapable situation.

In the aftermath of the escape, Chancellor Jackson became a celebrated figure. He wrote a best-selling book about his experiences, gave lectures and interviews, and even started his own reality TV show. But for all his fame and fortune, he never forgot what he'd left behind in Beijing. In an interview shortly before his 40th birthday, he said: "I still think about those days in prison. They were tough, but they made me who I am today."
