Akeem joined us to discuss the effects of solitary confinement and incarceration at Rikers Island, and the other inhumane conditions his late brother Kalief was subjected to, that stood in stark contrast to the vibrant teenager Kalief was prior to his arrest and wrongful incarceration.

Akeem discussed the work being done in Kalief’s legacy, including the Obama administration’s ban on solitary confinement for minors in federal prisons, New York’s “Raise the Age” law, and the various criminal justice reform laws passed in Kalief’s name.
