Kemba Smith

In 1994 she was sentenced to 24 and a half years in prison under federal mandatory drug sentencing laws. Her case quickly gained nationwide attention. After serving six years, Kemba received clemency from President Clinton in 2000. Smith is now an grassroots organizer, public speaker, and soon-to-be-author. She recently completed her first year of law school at Howard University and founded the Kemba Smith Foundation.
