New book of poetry and photography provides hope for the recently incarcerated

Coming out of prison can often be more difficult than going in. Even though they’ve paid their debt to society, they’re faced with the stigma of being ex-offenders, and often lack the needed resources-in society and in themselves-to move on and rebuild their lives. For years, Brandon Crockett has taught poetry to folks living at St. Leonard’s, a facility dedicated to moving people from prison to a positive, productive life on the outside. Now Crockett has teamed up with world-famous photographer Sandro Miller to produce a book of poetry and portraits by and of the people in his class. Brandon and members of his class join Morning Shift to talk about the experience. (Sandro Miller)
