My Journey with Alcatraz’s Ex-Cons

It’s the 80th anniversary for the opening of Alcatraz as a national penitentiary. This weekend is being spent celebrating the alumni that are still alive to tell their story.

While these jailed inmates were at the “top of their game” back in the day, they transitioned their lives after leaving “The Rock” and have become stand up gentlemen. To me, it’s proof that the system CAN work, if we give criminals a second chance.

So, here I celebrate the freedom and rehabilitation of some of Alcatraz’s former inmates…(pictured here with Bob Luke and Bill Baker)
