Louise Goode is the mother of Gregory Hines, currently incarcerated at Red Onion State Prison. In her postcard for Gregory, Louise sits with her granddaughter Amber, his niece, as they look through an old family photo album and talk about fashion, food and the future they see for him. Louise lives in Hampton, VA, eight hours away from where Gregory is incarcerated. Louise cannot drive, and when she recorded this piece she had not seen Gregory in over four years.
