Send Me Home

Before a witness recantation led to his immediate exoneration and release, Rickey Jackson spent four decades in prison for a murder he did not commit. Despite the unforgivable circumstances and disorientation experienced in returning home, Rickey seized his second chance. Send Me Home invites participants to take a journey in 360°, as Rickey grants us entry into his private world, guiding us through time gone, family known and the spaces he lovingly embraces today. The 360° video transports participants into Rickey’s mindspace, urging them to reflect on the expanse of their own lives in relation to the time Rickey has lost.
