Description

In this interview, Wallace (Wally) Webster speaks to representatives of the Black Inmates Forum Unlimited at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla. The forum was founded in December 1969 with the intention of helping African American prison inmates to extricate themselves from the prison system and succeed in general society. The forum also addressed racial inequities in the treatment of prison inmates at the penitentiary.
