Redemption:
The Stan “Tookie” Williams Story

Starring Jamie Foxx

Where is there a Nobel Peace Prize nominee on death row?

Right here in the Bay Area in San Quentin!

“With vibrant energy and style, actor/director Vondie Curtis Hall takes over the
camera to give us Redemption, the inspiring true-life story of Stan "Tookie"
Williams, the founding father of the infamous Crips street gang, whose time in jail
inspired him to help inner-city youth and pen books that earned him two Nobel Prize
nominations.

Jamie Foxx turns in an exceptional performance as a man who transforms himself…
Redemption teaches by example how someone can craft his own redemption.” - Shari
Frilot, from the Sundance Film Festival Guide
