Sylvester Long was born and raised in Detroit. In 1985, at age 26, he went to prison, and served 15 years in 16 different Michigan facilities. “To all of my sisters” is a poem he wrote in 1986, while incarcerated. He sent it to MT last week. It moved us, so we thought we’d share it with you. The voice of our incarcerated is a voice to be heard.
