Dave Sewell, 50
Dave's Story | Spanish Town, Jamaica
Dave, turning 50 this year, lives and works in the neighborhood he grew up in. But getting back here wasn't easy for him. Convicted of murder in his 20s, Dave spent the better part of his adult life (and his children's entire lives) in prison. After serving over 20 years - with three different stints on death row - Dave was granted parole, and now lives just ten minutes away from his childhood home, and the prison that has been his entire life. He now works with the Peace Management Initiative (PMI) as a Violence Interrupter - working in his community to turn youths away from gang and gun violence. He's dedicated his life to this mission. This is Dave, photographed in the living room of his home in Spanish Town, outside of Kingston.
