What Say Ye America?
Do you have a family member or friend who is/has been incarcerated for a parking ticket or minor drug offense, locked in the system under another form of slavery? Then call and share your story and your outrage.
Join the Real World News Radio team this Tuesday evening for a passion-filled discussion "Prison for Profit." Our guest will be Vonya Quarles, founder of Shades of Afrika and co-owner of I.E. Shades of Afrika.
