Download Podcast
You would think that US Attorney General Eric Holder had announced an end to the mass incarceration of Black people by the way some people have reacted to proposal to end federal mandatory minimums for certain people convicted of drug offenses. More sober analysis reveals that what is being proposed will not make a dent in mass incarceration in America.

Today we will be joined by Adam 'Henzbo' Henze is a professor and poet. He is a volunteer with a program called 'angel's wings' at the Indiana women's state prison (we donate supplies and host baby showers for expecting incarcerated mothers). He was a featured artist in the 2010 Lizz straight ministries prison tour and has taught workshops at the cook county juvenile detention center in Chicago, at the Arkansas juvenile assessment and treatment center. He was a presenter at the 2009 juvenile justice educators and trainers annual conference in Indianapolis.
