"Thank you for the opportunity to host a powerful, eye-opening documentary highlighting the issue of wrongful conviction, racism and abuse of authority in our criminal law system. This film should spur us into action to really impact the lives of our youth and prevent them from been a victim of wrongful incarceration, as well as be an advocate for somebody today."

Founder, Future Hope Apprenticeship Program.
"The first event I attended sponsored by The Innocent Convicts was held in January 2020 at the State House in Boston. It was impactful and profound, and gave me the chance to hear real stories and see the faces of black men that had been wrongly convicted. As a result, it stirred something within and I wanted to get involved-showing support for the organization. I asked one of the IC Partners when I can attend another event, bringing more attention to an unjust system which disproportionately affects black men and continues to plague our communities."

"I made a special effort to attend Chris Wilson's book signing for "The Master Plan" after my cousin from Her'tazhe and Osagie called me from Boston. Even though I was across the country the three of us supported yet another black male whose entire "wrongful" life experience as a youth resulted in circumstances that landed him in prison. In this instance, Chris had committed the crime. However, his authentic retelling and ultimate release were motivational. After that experience I pledged to support those imprisoned along the continuum from wrongfully convicted to "circumstantially" entrapped LIVING WHILE BLACK (or as a person of color)."
