The story of HFP President and former broadcast journalist Doug Tjapkes, as he leads a team of volunteers on a mission to gain the release of Maurice Carter, a wrongly convicted prisoner serving a life sentence. The true story of an unlikely friendship between a white middle-class broadcast journalist and an African-American serving a life sentence in prison for a crime he did not commit. An amazing account of outrageous injustice contrasts with a poignant and sometimes humorous tale of two men who became brothers in faith.
A collection of challenging and sometimes outspoken perspectives from the pen of the HFP founder, a proven champion of the humane treatment of the incarcerated.
With compassion for Michigan’s imprisoned, Humanity for Prisoners provides and promotes, with their strategic partnerships, a personalized, problem-solving service for incarcerated persons. Their intent is to alleviate suffering beyond the just administration of their sentences. This book is a collection of short stories exemplifying their plight.
