Kerry Myers

When: Thu., March 29, 7 p.m. 2018

Human trafficking, juvenile life sentences without parole, and Alzheimer’s and dementia in prison are among the topics journalist Kerry Myers has tackled during his career. Myers, who was sentenced to life without parole in 1990 in the Louisiana State Penitentiary, was recruited to be a writer for the prison’s news magazine The Angolite. He later would become editor, and steered the publication to become a resource for criminal justice and law programs. Meyers was issued parole in 2016 and has since remained a journalist and pursued criminal justice reform in Louisiana. His discussion will accompany the 23rd Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners.
