The juvenile justice system taught Jarvis how to fight, and while still a boy, defined for him what it meant to be a man, fierce, angry and proud. There were times when he tried to rise above and escape the cradle to prison pipeline, but the gravitational pull was too strong to resist. Excerpting sections of his memoir, “That Bird Has My Wings: The Autobiography of an Innocent Man on Death Row,” we will hear how Jarvis had to fight to survive, and about the “damn fool behavior,” he admits initially put him in prison at the ripe young age of 19.

Meet Marty Krasney, a decades long friend and confidante of Jarvis and the former Executive Director of Dalai Lama Fellows.

Theme song SENTENCED, is complements of the band Stick Figure, from their album “Set In Stone.”
