Putting the Light Inside the Prison
Interview with Fr. Russ Carmichael
Thousand Kites interviewed Fr. Russ Carmichael, who served time in prison in Massachusetts in the late 1960s. He is now working to help people coming home from prison, and to help people stay out of prison.
Fr. Russ works closely with Bobby Delello, who wrote When the Prisoners Ran Walpole. They use community television and new media strategies to connect people and open up dialogue about criminal justice.
Listen to Fr. Russ speak about his experiences, his struggle as a non-violent organizer in the prisons, and his advice for people in prison today to make change.
