Redlining & White Noise Part 5 | Telling the Truth About History with Jay Jenkins

In Part 5 of Redlining & White Noise, we talk with our friend, Jay Jenkins, Harris County Project Attorney with the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition. Our topic, Telling the Truth About History, builds on last week's conversation about the discovery of the skeletal remains of 95 African-Americans in Sugar Land, Tx. As a lawyer and advocate for criminal justice reform, Jay shares how he got involved with Reggie Moore’s efforts, how this discovery impacts our understanding of history, and how the convict-leasing system was the pre-cursor to mass incarceration in America.
