It was back in 1968 that Johnny Cash performed his famous concert inside Folsom Prison in California.
Stark Raven interviews Cheri about her work organizing the Franti concert and about her work connecting the inside and outside through music and poetry.
Also features highlights from the concert, including music from Michael Franti and Spearhead and an interview and performance by musician and lifer, Marty Williams.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
