Description

Although Carter spent many years studying law books in pursuit of exoneration, he came to realize that he could only be truly free if his mind was free. He read, he studied, he meditated. He challenged every assumption he had ever made about himself. It was, in fact, the toughest fight of his career. Finally, he did attain his freedomphysically and spiritually.The hard-won lessons that Carter learned in that brutal, unforgivable 20-year period of merciless self-reflection he now diligently applies in his life on the outside. Amazingly, it is a message not of bitterness or revenge, but of optimism and hope. Carter started the fight for the freedom of others and the preservation of his personal integrity through the Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted. He continues the fight through his organization Innocence International
