Description

A Humans of New York sensation, this is the inspiring, dramatic and heart-warming true story of an escaped convict, the love of his life, family, truth and how we all deserve a second chance. The young Walter Miller was a product of his time. Growing up Black in the post-Jim Crow American South, he was in trouble with the police before his fourteenth birthday. And, like so many young Black men, once he’d landed in the criminal justice system it was hard to find a way out. Soon enough, he was facing a thirty-year prison sentence. But Walter was smart. Smarter than his jailers. He escaped prison and fled to New York with one hundred dollars in his pocket. He changed his name to Bobby Love, and began again – living a crime-free life for nearly forty years, with a steady job, a loving wife, a church-going family. And a big secret. Until the FBI came knocking one cold winter morning, and it all came crashing down. The Redemption of Bobby Love is an incredible true story that illuminates some of the enduring themes of being Black in America. Fuelled by the drama of a jailbreak and the suspense of a man on the run, at its heart is a remarkable tale about breaking free from society’s prejudices and making the most of a precious second chance.
