Clarence Carnes - From Boarding School to Alcatraz

Tim Tingle Performs "From Boarding School to Alcatraz"

During research for his masters thesis at the University of Oklahoma, Tingle met Choctaw elder Cecil Berry, a survivor of 30 years in a federal penitentiary. Berry's true purpose was to share details of a crime spree that sent Clarence Carnes, his friend from boarding school, to Alcatraz Island—at the age of 19.  Among the darkness and the rocks, Carnes performs one unforgettable act of goodness.
