TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Conrad Black discusses his time as an inmate in the U.S. prison system and his new memoir in an interview airing Friday, September 16 at 10 pm ET on TVO's Allan Gregg in Conversation.

The former newspaper magnate, who spent 29 months in a Florida prison on fraud charges, gave the interview days before he returned to prison on September 6 to serve the remaining months of his sentence.

In the interview, Black shares what his daily life in prison was like, what he'll do and where he'll live when he gets out, and shares his opinions on what he sees as a corrupt U.S. justice system.

Of his remaining sentence, Black says he is unenthused, but unintimidated: "It's an outrage, but in one sense… the greater the palpable and demonstrable injustice with which I am treated, the easier it is to make my case and possibly be of some use in alleviating the problems of others who otherwise would be as vulnerable to this or more than I have been."

Black's new memoir A Matter of Principle is released this week. In it, Black describes the legal battle that began in 2004 when he was accused of fraud and his subsequent trial, imprisonment and appeal.
