Part 6: Antione Day
2390
In 1990, Antione Day, a 28-year-old father of five and musician, had just returned from an out-of-town gig when he heard that local police were looking to ask him some questions about a recent robbery-homicide in his neighborhood. He had no idea that his freedom -- and his family -- would be ripped away from him for over a decade. In this episode, Antione talks about how his wrongful conviction also robbed his children of the father they needed, but with love and time, they are on the road to healing.

Part 4: Kwame Ajamu
2615
Kwame Ajamu was 17 years old when he, his brother, and their friend were convicted of robbery and murder in 1975. The only evidence against them was the fabricated testimony of a 12-year-old boy. Still, all three men were sentenced to death. In this chapter, Kwame describes how education became his refuge during his 28 years in prison, and how his personal transformation would turn him into the man who would exonerate the three, and eventually find the love and support he needed.
