"I've been sitting in here for 30 years; every single day I came out of the cell was a fight for my life. Anytime that we came out of that cell, I could've died. It was that serious." - Mac Tatum, who spent 3 decades in maximum security prisons for a crime he committed @ 20 yrs old.
On the next episode of #cr8ztalk
, you'll hear what Mac has to say about the harsh conditions inside, how he endured decades of psychological abuse, and how hard it's been since to start a new life on the outside... I ask Mac questions white people are too afraid to ask black people, and we challenge Missouri's next Senator to confront the American prison phenomenon that has gotten so little attention!
There's no reason the land of the free should have the most prisoners and worst recidivism; the first step to fixing a huge problem is recognizing it to begin with.
That's what happens in this episode... I learned a lot from my talks with Mac, and am now cutting together an episode trailer/shorter clips so this one reaches more listeners. : ) :
