For our first episode of the new year, we wanted to begin sharing an interview with Leon Benson. In this conversation, he covers his release from prison, reflections on the treatment he received from the authorities, and his work on the outside.  This is a special privilege for Kite Line, since we have aired Benson’s work and thought many times over the years, since he was a leading organizer and thinker inside the Indiana Department of Corrections.  We are thrilled that he has been released and are excited to share news of his ongoing work to challenge the prison system. In this segment, he shares the story of what led him to be arrested for a murder he didn’t commit. We will continue this interview in our next episode.

You can hear previous episodes with Leon and his family members here.
