NEW BOOK BY REGINALD
" This collection of 28 powerful essays
were recorded in a small,
cramped cell on Pennsylvania.s death row, at SCI-Greene, one of the
toughest, super-maximum security prisons in the state, which employed
Corporal Charles Graner, the central figure in the prisoner abuse
scandal at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. I recount my own painful
childhood memories, and a tapestry of stories is cut from the daily
lives of over two million men and women trapped inside the dark gulags
all across America. There are hard-hitting investigative pieces about
unjust convictions, police corruption, dehumanizing shakedowns,
black-on-black crime, and this writer.s correspondence with a group of
schoolchildren that precipitated the three-day, 30-mile Children's
Crusade to Death Row, a memorable civil rights march that garnered
local, national, and international media attention. Where I'm Writing
From is a fascinating collection of essays about the cold reality of
life behind bars."
