Curtis Carroll: How I learned to read, and trade stocks -- in prison

I was randomly watching a video on Youtube, when I came across this video.

Curtis Carroll is an inmate at the San Quentin prison. He is serving a 54 year sentence for a crime he committed at 17.

He taught himself to read in prison, and was given the nickname "Wall Street" by inmates. He now tutors his inmates to be financial literate and to trade in the stock market all from within the prison walls.

This is his story.
