    in Politics Progressive

    Saturdays 9pmEST (Sundays sometimes)
    Johnny Strozier was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years (from 1968 to 2013), with roughly 15 of them served in solitary confinement. He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends burglarized an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was imprisoned at age 10. He was transferred to an adult facility, then his sentence was lengthened by 90 years after cutting a prison guard. Strozier's warden told him he would never exit prison alive because he escaped several times and was involved in gang activity, but Strozier changed. He became a Christian in the 1980s. Strozier got active in church and also gained his high school diploma while still incarcerated. He also became a certified cook and brick mason. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, completed reentry programs, and attends church twice or more times weekly. Strozier's last cellmate in Macon Prison was Atlanta child killer Wayne Williams. Strozier advocates personal responsibility.


    Strozier shares information about reentry opportunities, the importance of avoiding behavior that leads to incarceration, and he brought together other people and groups who share valuable information to improve lives of former inmates and at-risk youths. For speaking engagments in Georgia, please call (678)516-4993

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real (Reentry Broadcast) 04/19/2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right (rescheduled to Sunday for this week only). America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them. Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.

    Johnny Strozier "Keeping It Real" goes on air at 9pm EST on Jan. 18, 2015! Call (347) 857-3293 to speak on air. A Georgia prisoner for 46 years  - from 1968 to 2013, Strozier speaks about re-entry opportunities and challenges and reveals what life was like growing up and nearly growing old in prison. He was incarcerated from age 10 to his mid-50s. Johnny's stories are tragic, sometimes darkly humorous, and always inspirational as he challenges us to think right and act right so that our lives will go right.

    He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy for themselves. He was sentenced to juvenile detention at age 10 and transferred to an adult facility at age 16. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard. Strozier was moved to death row, but the guard lived and so did he. Strozier spent 15 years in solitary confinement. Strozier's warden once told him he would never exit prison alive. But Johnny did get paroled because he changed, and so can all of us change to realize our dreams.
