Men at San Quentin Prison participated in a letter exchange with incarcerated 14 to 18-year-olds at Miami Youth Academy. The exchange, which was facilitated by the Prison Journalism Project and Florida-based prison education group Exchange for Change, has had a profound effect for both parties. Retired journalist Henry Unger and Yukari Iwatani Kane, the co-founder of the Prison Journalism Project, spoke with CBSN Bay Area’s Michelle Griego about setting up the exchange.
