Toure Show – Cyntoia Brown—I Am Free!

Cyntoia Brown got out of prison just a few months ago. She did 15 years of a life sentence in prison for murder and she admits to having shot and killed a man but she was 15 years old and she had been forced into prostitution by a much older man after years of being raped, abused, and led astray. When the world learned about her case there was an outcry—the system had failed her, everyone failed her. Her story is amazing and it’s chronicled in a heartbreaking book called Free Cyntoia. We talk through her unbelievable story and try to understand how she made it through. Let me know what you think! Instagram @toureshow. Twitter: @toure
