As part of our StoryCorps series on criminal justice, we bring you this conversation on growing up in New Orleans.
Kendell Morgan and Henry Byous grew up on the same New Orleans block. These lifelong friends talk about their experiences with the criminal legal system, rebuilding their lives after incarceration, and the challenges they face raising young black men.
This piece was produced by Eve Abrams, in partnership with The Justice Project, a StoryCorps initiative to preserve and amplify the stories of people affected by incarceration across the U.S. Learn more at StoryCorps.org.
