DES MOINES, Iowa -- A basketball star, turned drug dealer, turned activist started an organization to help others with life after prison.
Although US Census Data shows African Americans only make up about four percent of Iowa’s population, the Iowa Department of Corrections statistics show 25 percent of inmates are black.
I.M.A.G.E. Program Founder Bobby Pate used to be one of those inmates and after serving more than a decade of his life in prison he’s dedicated the rest of his life to helping other former inmates with life outside of correctional facilities.
