WELCOME ANDRE LATALLADE (AKA) CAPITAL X to AUSTIN
Photo by Joshua McKerrow — The Capital X from the early part of the Walk
Andre Latallade, also known as rapper Capital X, spoke about his walk from Trenton, N.J., to Austin, Texas, a 1,700-mile campaign to put an end to the death penalty. A former convict himself, a tattoo on his neck references Hebrews 13:3: “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
