Kwane Rashid is a sixty-one-year-old father of three and grandfather of five. He has spent the last thirty years of his life in a Georgia State Prison for the non-violent offense of possession. Thirty years is a long time to be separated from your family.
During that time he has been a model inmate with a clean record.
Kwane is nearly blind as a result of an injury he sustained during his arrest and at his age, he poses no threat of living a life of crime.
He has maintained positive relationships with family and has strong ties to his community.
Kwane Rashid has spent most of his life behind bars but is not bitter, he wants to use the remainder of his life in service, sharing his life experiences to inspire young people to live productive and healthy lives.
