"Wisdom Behind Walls: Voices from the Inside," a new section of the Firpo
Files Newsmagazine, will primarily feature writings from incarcerated African American males who yearn to share their outlook
and experience in an effort to educate the public as to what's happening 'behind the wall,' and specifically to discourage
younger African American males from embarking on a life of crime. Their stories are very compelling. Statistics show that
Men of Color, especially Black men, are jailed or imprisoned at a far higher rate proportionately then are their White counterparts.
