I’m an exoneree from detroit. My exoneration came through the Conviction Integrity Unit of the Wayne County Prosecutors office. Since I’ve been home, I’ve started a Exoneree Supoort group that helps other exonerees. I’m willing to travel to tell my story.

The number of falsely imprisoned POC is frightening. The odds of a black person getting a racist on their jury is pretty fu*king good. Read the article below with an advanced trigger warning. It's a brutal and heartbreaking read. How do we weed racist jurors out?
