[REBROADCAST] Neil White, a journalist, magazine publisher and family man, was convicted in 1993 for check fraud and sentenced for eighteen months in federal prison. That prison, a former sugar plantation located in southern gothic Carville, Louisiana, was also the U.S. Government-sanctioned National Leprosarium. Some of the afflicted became his friends. White tells the stories of these people in a memoir, “In the Sanctuary of Outcasts,” as well as his story of the transformed, humbler man he had become when he was released.
