GLOW is the title of one of the songs on this record, and it also happens to capture the theme of this project. When I first met Tarik Greene at a Restorative Justice panel 3 years ago, he GLOWED as he described the work of M.A.D.E. Transitional Services, a grassroots, non-profit organization in Rockland County, NY that he and Toney Earl, Jr. co-founded to advocate for men and women coming out of prison. I was struck by his determination and dedication to make a difference in the lives of formerly incarcerated people, in essence to help them GLOW, despite the stigmatization and discrimination they face when they come out of prison. Whether they were falsely accused, or actually committed a crime, these people have served their time and deserve a second chance, a chance to GLOW!
