For nearly 20 years, Bill Moyers and his team followed the story of David Lewis, an ex-con, ex-drug addict and former gang member.
Lewis dedicated his life to proving that even hardened criminals could be rehabilitated.
He became known around the world for a simple but radical program he developed to help people like himself get clean and stay out of prison. It was working wonders — and so was David Lewis — until earlier this summer, when he was gunned down in an East Palo Alto, Calif., parking lot.
Nobody has identified David Lewis’ killer. Three weeks ago, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a $50,000 reward to anyone with information leading to a conviction in the case of Lewis’ death.
For now, what we can provide is a retrospective of what was a truly remarkable life.
