Alice Marie Johnson – From Incarceration to Freedom

After Life: My Journey from Incarceration to Freedom – In 1996 Alice Johnson was sentenced to a mandatory life sentence plus 25-years without parole for her role in a nonviolent federal drug case. This was her first and only conviction ever. After she served twenty-one years, her life sentence was commuted in 2018 by President Donald Trump, with the help of Kim Kardashian West. An ordained minister, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Johnson shares her dramatic story of hope, mercy and gratitude while making the public aware of the realities of life behind bars and the importance of the ongoing struggle to end mass incarceration. Her story is a vital reminder of the power of redemption and of the importance of making second chances count.
