Alice Marie Johnson, the author of “After Life: My Journey from Incarceration to Freedom,” will share her story during a special presentation at the National Civil Rights Museum on June 3.
Johnson earned national attention when reality star and business mogul Kim Kardashian West advocated for her release from prison. She was reunited with her family when President Donald Trump granted her clemency on June 6, 2018.
Johnson’s first and only conviction netted a mandatory life sentence without parole for her involvement in a nonviolent drug case. During her nearly 22 years of incarceration, she accomplished what has been termed an “extraordinary rehabilitation” and received numerous awards.
Now, a major film production company is set to produce a movie soon based on Johnson’s life journey.
The speaking engagement, which is set for 6 p.m., is free and open to the public. Registration is highly recommended.
