“With utmost admiration for you, your work, your courage and great human spirit, and with love as brother to brother. There is a whole world of decent people who love and admire you." Your comrade, Michael Parenti
“Someone asked me why I connect with you. Well, actually they said 'why do I love’ you? 'Hmmm'. I answered; 'I, with every molecule of my soul, want the world to be more beautiful, more generous, and more caring. I dream about that'. Helping the world hear your voice is like participating in a wonderful and deeply moving jazz quartet, or with all the folks that make this possible, even a symphony. It is that beauty, when your voice joins with ours, and the voices of all people of color are honored with our listening.
“Listen to an incisive critic of our criminal justice system speaking from the depths of prison. Tune in to hear this rare and courageous voice speaking from a place we fear to know.” - Dr. Jocelyn Elders
