Kyle Swenson, Kwame Ajamu Discuss "Good Kids, Bad City"

Featured Audio

Former Cleveland Scene reporter Kyle Swenson's new book, "Good Kids, Bad City: A Story of Race and Wrongful Conviction in America" chronicles the story of three young black Clevelanders wrongfully convicted of murder in 1975. They spent decades in prison before Swenson shined a light on their case and then the lone witness responsible for their convictions admitted he'd lied as a child. They were exonerated in 2014.  "This is an atrocity that happened to us and it has happened thousands upon thousands of times day in and day out," said Kwame Ajamu, one of the three wrongfully convicted. He joins us along with Swenson, now a reporter for the Washington Post.
