This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. A life sentence in Pennsylvania means exactly that. These women, all of whom have served decades in prison, sing of the very real possibility of dying alone in prison.
The Lady Lifers, including Brenda Watkins, lead vocals, Dannielle Hadley, Debra Lee Brown, Theresa Battles, Diane Metzger, Thelma Nichols, Joann Butler, Lena Brown and Trina Garnett. Words by Howard Woodring, music by Naomi Blount.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
