In 1993, Washington State voters passed a three-strikes law that sent children to prison for life without parole, branding them as irredeemable superpredators. Kimonti Carter is serving out a life sentence without parole based on these harsh laws, but rather than accept this condemnation, he has worked to transform his peers' lives through education. SINCE I BEEN DOWN investigates the circumstances and inequities that have landed a generation of African-American youth in prison, while demonstrating a path to justice and healing led from inside prison walls.
