We will be joined by Mrs. Dora Mingo of McComb, Mississippi, whose son, Julian Mingo, has been suffering in Mississippi State prison for nearly four years on charges of having fondled one of his white male music students while on his job at an all-white private academy in Columbus, MS. Our next guests will be representatives of the ACLU of Mississippi, we will look into the prison industries that exploit prison labor for private profit. We will also discuss the findings of David Oshanky, who wrote the book "Worse than Slavery" that exposed the infamous Parchman Farm in Central Mississippi nearly 10 years ago. We will also have some more information about the upcoming National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta on July 29-August 2.
