Amnesty International deputy regional director for Middle East and North Africa.
Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron is retiring after a legendary career in journalism. He joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss his life and legacy and how he credits his 'strong sense of mission' for his success. Then looking back at the Arab Spring ten years on; Egyptian novelist Ahdaf Souief and Amnesty International's Amna Guellali discuss how the region has changed since the revolutions one decade ago. Chris Young was sentenced to life in prison at the age of 22 due to mandatory minimum laws, after a third nonviolent drug-related conviction in 2010. Kevin Sharp was the federal judge who handed down that sentence and who later resigned from his lifelong judicial appointment and then worked with Young’s legal team to overturn the sentence. Sharp and Young join our Michel Martin to tell their story. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
