Ta’Bon, who served nearly a decade behind bars for armed robbery, says divine inspiration has led him to preach a gospel of nonviolence from a homemade, outdoor jail cell in Philadelphia.
He has been living in the cell since Feb. 1 and plans to stay there throughout the month of February.
“Instead of the young bucks going to jail to find out for themselves, I’m bringing the jail to the young bucks,” Ta’Bon said.(SOURCE)
Today marks the last day of his historic journey. Many rappers have been inspired by his story, and have came out to talk to Ta’bon, including Tone Trump and Feed Da Hood founder Redface. It baffles me that if an individual is convicted of a drug crime, then that individual is not eligible for financial aid for college. That was the case in 2006, I am not sure if that has changed, but I firmly believe in second chances. We are locking up individuals,but rarely do we reabilitate them. God Bless Michael Ta’bon.
