Otis Johnson was recently released from prison after being locked up for 44 years. He was sentenced when he was 25 and has now been released at the age of 69 so as you can imagine, the world has changed a lot in the time.
When he was released he quickly realised that the world was completely different to the one he once knew back in the 1960’s. In this video with the help of Al Jazeera, Johnson visits Times Square in New York and simply sits there and observes the modern world around him.
The insight he offers into the world we live in today is fascinating as he highlights strange behaviours, technologies and factors of everyday life that many of us take for granted or have become so accustomed to. To read more on Otis, you can read Al Zazeera’s in depth interview with him here.
