Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian West revealed she would be executive producing a film for Oxygen that would spotlight her “efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system.” Today, she has shared photos with some of the people who she has met as part of her forthcoming documentary, Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project.
The two-hour documentary obviously isn’t her first foray into television, nor is it her first encounter with the American legal system; On more than one occasion the reality TV star has leveraged her social media following to advocate for prison reform. Last year, Kardashian met with Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. Following the meeting, President Trump commuted Johnson’s sentence.
In a Vogue cover story this year, Kim revealed she was also studying to become a lawyer.
On this episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by founder and creative director of 18 East Antonio Ciongoli, who gives us some wisdom on how to run an independent label today and talks about his past in menswear. Enjoy.
