Since I Been Down shines a brilliant, harsh light on the fundamental dysfunctionality and raw corruption of America’s “criminal justice system.” The case study of Kimonti Carter, a Hilltop, Tacoma-born man sentenced to 777 years as a teenager, offers a dramatically different take on what justice can look like. The prisoner-led education program that Carter works within, T.E.A.C.H. (Taking Education and Creating History), creates a growing community of victims of the carceral state who are committed to personal growth, self-knowledge, and one another.
