Anthony Papa who is an artist and activist and author of This Side of Freedom: Life after Clemency & 15 to Life (www.15tolife.com) and the manager of media & artist relations for the Drug Policy Alliance appears in a 2000 documentary narrated by actor Uma Thurman about mandatory minimum sentencing and the drug war. The documentary is about Victor Hugo's novel "Les Miserables." I became the modern version of his epic character Jean Valiean, a good man condemned to hard labor for a petty theft. When Valiean was released from prison he had to carry a yellow passport which identified himself as a former felon. Although I don't have to carry a yellow passport, like Valiean, I am burdened with the label of being an ex-felon.
