conwayMay 26, 2014 – Segment 2

We listen to tape from a special evening Marc hosted with Eddie Conway last week at Red Emma’s. Eddie Conway is a former Black Panther who was released from prison earlier this year after being incarcerated for 44 years. He discusses his time in prison, his work with young men inside and outside prison, and Friend of a Friend, a mentoring project he started with American Friends Service Committee.  Friend of a Friend works to reduce institutional violence by providing tools that build healthy relationships, create support structures, and develop effective communication skills. We also hear from Green Bay, one of the young men Eddie mentored who is part of Friend of a Friend.
