Why she waited two decades for him to get out of prison

Antwann Green and Tanya Campbell started dating when she was 16 years old.

He was older, handsome, and brought her out of her shell. But he was also somewhat wild and ended up serving more than two decades in prison. Campbell waited for him that whole time.

A few months ago, Green was released from prison and they came by the Chicago StoryCorps booth through a partnership with Growing Home.

StoryCorps’ mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to share, record and preserve their stories. These excerpts, edited by WBEZ, present some of our favorites from the current visit, as well as from previous trips.
