For the past 28 years, Keith has maintained his innocence from solitary confinement, researching and studying his death penalty case from inside a steel cage the size of a closet. In spite of being unable to touch grass or feel the wind against his skin, Keith LaMar has cultivated a beautifully perceptive understanding about life and the system that railroaded him. One of the best ways to get to know Keith better is by hearing and reading him in his own words:
Watch and listen to the musical collaborations of Freedom First Jazz, under the direction of Albert Marquès, as they bring Keith's poetry and spoken word--recorded from death row--to life in the studio.
