Tonight, we discuss incarceration.
From Angela Davis’ “Are Prisons Obsolete?” to Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow,” the surge of freedom fighters challenging our mass incarceration system is ever-increasing, particularly in light of growing ICE raids and the reign of violence targeting black and brown communities.
On tonight’s show:
- I am honored to be joined by Keith Wattley, founder and executive director of UnCommon Law, for the entire hour.
- We will listen to voices from UnCommon Law’s event, “UnCommon Heroes.”
- We will discuss recent criminal justice reform efforts …
- And … the changes Keith continues to envision in the fight for justice.
All that tonight on Full Circle.
