Political Perspectives on 07/03/13
The previously scheduled program on Self-evident Truths is not available.
Instead we'll hear "A New Way of Life and the New Underground Railroad:Making a Break for Freedom During the Era of Mass Incarceration," a radio documentary that weaves together the voices of Susan Burton, Michelle Alexander, and five residents of A New Way of Life, Reentry Project in South Los Angeles. Ms. Burton opened her doors to other women returning home from prisons and jails, offering shelter, safety, leadership, and support to those seeking to rebuild their lives. Her story of perseverance in overcoming overwhelming odds and her dedication to the service of others is an inspiration to women across the United States, particularly formerly incarcerated women and those recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
