SORT BY Relevancy
A true crime thriller of prison life not only tells his story but also speaks on the issues behind the walls of the California prison system. Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home with a death wish and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell's Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him with Organized Crime charges. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn't stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church and loves to reach out to other prisoners to help them turn their lives around. He speaks as a guest Lecturer at Criminal Justice colleges and writes articles for newspapers. "I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders, where in prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape."
Guests: Glenn Langohr; Wilford Smith
Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real features our host, a man who was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. Call-in at (347) 857-3293 each Friday. Strozier was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was incarcerated at age 10. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard as a teenager in an adult facility. Strozier's warden told him he would die in prison, but he did not. Strozier changed. Strozier became a Christian in the 1980s, then graduated from high school, became a certified cook and brick mason, and got married while still behind bars. Prison officials and the State Board of Pardons and Paroles recognized the change in Strozier and eventually paroled him. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, and attends church regularly. Strozier has many interesting stories to tell that inspire youths to avoid incarceration and motivate released prisoners not to recidivate. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.
In this episode of Prison Wives United, I will introduce myself and explain why I chose to start this. I will discuss what I've been through, and future plans for this show. I plan to do this weekly, and each week I will feature a specific discussion in hopes of getting you all to participate. I will have a friend of mine who will close us in prayer. The show will be nothing without yall, so I hope you plan to listen and join in on the conversation. Check me out on Instagram @prisonwivesunited for daily inspiration, and uplifting posts. <3

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
BLACK MAN WORKING, your skill are needed. The new Jim Crow program. We will need to look at history. The Bible and other books for infomation. Prison Work Camp Program, need inmates. A Black man in prison, is a Black man not making a baby.
We kill more Black Babies weekly then the KKK. That program is for Blacl People, You know what I am talking about. That 3 to 6 week old baby in you. Not just you in the U.S. but all over the world for Black people. "WE WILL HELP YOU KILL THAT BABY"
My White Brothers and Sisters you are not safe, you may be sleep. Us see part of the program is to keep us from unighting.
LAW, we are not BLACK or WHITE, no land call black or white. Go back to the LAND, and then said " I AM". I am working on that now. Black people you have 15 years of schooling, and some know nothing about Africa. Why?
