    Billy Joe Chambers "B.J." with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Education

    They made approximately 3 million dollars a week and made up to 50 million dollars a year selling drugs. Join us with Guest Billy Joe Chambers a.k.a "B.J." after spending 22 years in prison now he is home. B.J., Larry, Willie and Otis Chambers are some of the most notorious drug lords in American History. It all ended when Larry videotaped the drug deals and money and the videotapes got into the hands of DEA and the Media. "B.J.'s" new Book, Prodigy Hustler allows readers to follow Chambers along his journey to the top of the Detroit cocaine game. Chambers gives detailed accounts of life struggles and experiences as he traveled from his hometown, Marianna, Arkansas to the streets of Detroit where he became known as a member of the "Chambers Gang," Detroit's largest drug organization. Chambers was recently featured in BET's "American Gangster" series. Prodigy Hustler is now available for readers enjoyment. You won't want to miss this interview. The drug conspiracy involved an extensive crack cocaine distribution network in the City of Detroit, organized and directed by brothers Billy Joe and Larry Chambers, and known as the Chambers Brothers Organization. The conspiracy allegedly began in 1983 and continued through February 1988. There was testimony that the widespread and carefully structured operations generated narcotics sales of as much as $200,000 a day. The operation was conducted out of various locations in the City of Detroit and was policed by a cadre of conspirator/enforcers known as "the wrecking crew." All twenty-two persons indicted were members of the organization. The Chambers brothers recuited many of their 500 employees from Detroit High Schools and their impoverished hometown of Marianna, Arkansas, keeping their troops in line with brutality and intimidation.

    Episode 60: Supported Decision-Making (SDM) and Conservatorship

    in Education

    Under Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), people with disabilities enjoy legal capacity — the capacity for rights and capacity to act — on an equal basis with others in all aspects of life. Supported Decision-Making (SDM) is a framework that supports this right and helps individuals with disabilities make choices about their own lives with support from a team of people. Supported Decision-Making is an alternative to guardianship.   In this episode, thoughtful leaders Peter Blanck, Ph.D., J.D. and Jonathan Martinis, Esq., J.D. of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University, will discuss recent court cases where rights were restored and Supported Decision-Making teams were established.
    You can submit your questions, explore resources and view the complete program schedule and archived shows on www.adalive.org.
