Michael Tabon is doing everything he can to ensure incarceration stops becoming a way of life for the next generation of African American men. Once caught in the revolving door of the U.S. criminal-justice system himself, he's now leading a one-man power movement. This excerpt from MediaStorm's first original film, Fight Hate with Love, gives a snapshot of Tabon's tension between playing a hero for both his community and family. To support the film's launch, MediaStorm has a KickStarter campaign that anyone can donate to.
