Podcast: James Forman Jr. on Political Activism

in Podcasts by

The Wall Street Journal says, “If we are going to have a national conversation about race in the United States, a book like [James Forman Jr.’s] Locking Up Our Own ought to set the tone.”

The Yale Law School professor, former public defender, and charter school founder brings his experience to the complex minefield topic of race and incarceration in his first book, Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America.

James and Roxanne explored the intricacies of political activism and the role it plays today. They also discuss the current gun debate, the decriminalization of marijuana, and James’ father, the civil rights leader James Forman Sr.

Stay tuned next week for Part 2 of our conversation with James Forman Jr.
