KQED Newsroom Special: Stand Up San Quentin (#336H) Duration: 27:46 STEREO

Stand Up San Quentin
Once known only as a violent and dangerous place, San Quentin State Prison now has some of the most innovative rehabilitation programs in the California prison system.

In this KQED Newsroom special, Stand Up San Quentin, we get an inside look at a program where inmates write and perform their own stories.

"I'll never forget my first morning at San Quentin," says inmate Emile DeWeaver in his monologue.

"When you're in prison for so long, you get used to one costume. And it's blue," says inmate Azraal Ford to an audience of fellow prisoners. "We all look like Smurfs in here."

We'll also hear from Dionne Wilson, a victims' rights advocate whose husband was murdered and who found healing by volunteering in prison, and from former San Quentin inmate Troy Williams, who sheds light on life after prison.
