In this week's Spotlight we feature "Conspired Redemption" by Keith V. Dunbar
A True Story of Winning In The Game of Life
In 1997, KEITH VINCENT DUNBAR was convicted by the United States Federal Government of Conspiracy.
He offered no defense.
The Prosecuting Attorney promised him he'd get life in prison and his Defense Attorney threatened to resign from his case if he dared to demand a trial before a jury of his peers. "Save yourself," they both said. "Plead out for a lesser sentence."
With 22 witnesses lined up to testify against him and 32 co-conspirators who all but one had already pled guilty, his only hope to see life outside of prison walls was to follow suit. So Dunbar pled guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute and Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine Base.
Now, after serving more than a decade in federal prison, Dunbar presents his case - against the United States Federal Government. It is the same charge of Conspiracy that he makes and proves the government guilty of: Conspiracy to enact and use draconian laws, policies and practices to emasculate and annihilate the African American race. See who really conspired against whom?
Conspired Redemption is Dunbar's defense. It's his saving grace. It is his redemption.
Having been out of prison for more than three years, KEITH V. DUNBAR has beaten the odds of recidivism for African-American males. Dunbar lives with his wife, Sandra, in Sherwood, Arkansas where he is an entrepreneur, investor and consultant to youth and community organizations. Dunbar attends college, is an avid chess player and instructor and speaks regularly to African American males about avoiding the pitfalls and behaviors that lead to prison.
