TV: “Innocent, But 49+ Years in Prison, Including Death Row”

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s February 2017 TV program focuses on the criminal justice system – and especially the death penalty – from the first-hand experience of someone who has lived his entire life right here in Washington State.

Dawud al-Malik was completely innocent of the crimes for which he was prosecuted and imprisoned for more than 49 years, including some years on death row. Dawud went to prison in 1966 at the age of 19, and was released on parole in February 2015.

Despite the horrible injustices he experienced, Dawud survived with a warm sweetness about him, and a healthy appreciation for the full humanity of himself and other people.

I was delighted to develop friendship with Dawud over the past several months before we conducted this interview in January 2017 for our Februaray TV program, and I’m happy he shared his firsthand experience and his insights during this interview.
