Prison Reform and Abolition: BGF, New Prison Leadership & More

jail-cellFebruary 10, 2015 – Segment 2

In light of the news that Tavon White – the Black Guerrilla Family member who ran a drug ring in prison and impregnated four guards – would receive a lightened sentence because he gave key testimony against other inmates and guards, as well as public statements made by Stephen T. Moyer, Governor Larry Hogan’s nominee to run the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, our panel discusses prison reform.

With: Harold Bailey, former Open Society Institute Fellow who – after being incarcerated in the Maryland prison system for 20 years — partnered with Tuerk House Recovery Centers to provide services for formerly incarcerated males; Israel Cason, President and Founder of I Can’t We Can; Eddie Conway, former political prisoner and producer for the Real News Network; Dominque Stevenson, Program Director for the American Friends Service Committee and co-author with Eddie Conway of Marshall Law: The Life and Times of a Baltimore Black Panther.
