Greetings from Earnest…

Incarcerated: 35 years
Housed: San Quentin State Prison

Humans of San Quentin began as light in the darkness of Covid-19. The effect of people caring for other people, especially a convicted murderer like me who lost my mother and three aunts in a very short time was therapy that I needed to keep me praying and balanced. Humans of San Quentin is important because it is an entity created to exhibit what empathy and love looks and feels like.

Sincerely, Earnest “Ben Shuah” Woods II
