Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real features our host, a man who was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. Call-in at (347) 857-3293 each Friday. Strozier was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was incarcerated at age 10. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard as a teenager in an adult facility. Strozier's warden told him he would die in prison, but he did not. Strozier changed. Strozier became a Christian in the 1980s, then graduated from high school, became a certified cook and brick mason, and got married while still behind bars. Prison officials and the State Board of Pardons and Paroles recognized the change in Strozier and eventually paroled him. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, and attends church regularly. Strozier has many interesting stories to tell that inspire youths to avoid incarceration and motivate released prisoners not to recidivate. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent.

The US should ask God forgiveness for trespasses of genocide, unprecedented mass incarceration, police brutality, and colonial enslavement. The United States of America has an enormous mass incarceration problem. More than 2-4-million prisoners are locked up in federal penitentiaries, state corrections facilities, and jailhouses. Incarceration in the US is nearly 3.5 times higher than that of Mexico. In fact, there are more people locked up in the US than in China. America has the largest prison population in the world and one out of every 100 Americans is locked up behind bars.
What is False imprisonment? It is the unlawful restraint of a person against her will by someone without legal authority or justification. Fact: Innocent people are wrongly accused & falsely incarcerated in this country sometimes for decades because of police & prosecutorial misconduct. What is a Wrongful Death? A wrongful death is a claim that exists when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person, police ect. Can Law Enforcement Officers be held liable for death they commit against unarmed victims?
What is Due Process? The government may not deprive citizens of “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. This means the government has to follow rules and cannot deny the accused of: hearings, trials, medical treatment nor their right to freedom.

Today, more than one out of every 100 Americans is behind bars, and the US has the largest prison population in the world, both in terms of the actual number of inmates and as a percentage of the total population. The numbers are staggering: the US incarceration rate is nearly 3.5 times higher than that of Mexico, a country that has spent the last decade in the throes of an actual drug war, and between five and ten times higher than those seen in Western Europe. There are more people locked up in the US than in China. In fact, the US is home to nearly a quarter of the world's prisoners, despite accounting for just 5 percent of the overall global population.

Is there a New Jim Crow or is it the same old Jim Crow? This show will discuss the issue of Mass Incarcaration and the Murder of Black and Brown Males by Law Enforcement.
The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. 2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.
Does that mean White Males committ less crime? Statistically White Males are the most likely to commit rape, Mass Murder, Spree Killings, and Serial Killings. The average White Serial Killer is allowed to repeatedly commit crimes such as rape and murder before being, "Profiled." By the time they became sloopy they are old and have repeatedly killed over a span of years. With African American Males they are Profiled before every committing a crime. Often they are shot and killed by Police on, "Suspicion" of a crime such as Robbery.
This past week a white male, Eric Frein who shot two deputies, killing one was captured in Pennsylvania alive. Had that been a black male they would have went into his neighborhood and anywhere his relatives lived. They would have harrassed every relative he had and arrested them, and any black mail who fit the, "Profile."
We have a call in guest, Isabelle Gravenstein. She is working with a young man who has been sentenced to 20 years to life for a crime he did not commit. This is a similar issue to my son Kerry Baxter Senior who is serving 66 years to life for a crime he did not commit. The cold part is they know these men are innocent but any old Black Man Will Do! The Same Old Jim Crow!
Tune in and listen up!
The National Movement Against Mass Incarceration and Prison Slavery continues tonight on "THE PEOPLE'S PLATFORM". There won't be any super heros coming to the rescue for the 2.5 million people incarcerated in u.s.a.

Listen in tonight and find out what you can do to be a part of this Movement.
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on the troubling issue of mass incarceration in the United States and its impact with some extraordinary guests who can speak to the issue both from the outside in, and from the inside out. What’s behind this uniquely American practice of widespread incarceration? Is it really about guilt or innocence? Or is it a bigger question of social justice?
Joining us to sort this out is well-known actor and author of Letters to a Young Incarcerated Brother, Hill Harper, writer and convicted felon, David Harris, and Harvard criminal justice specialist, Ron Sullivan. Together we will discuss this issue of mass incarceration and its implications for the future of our nation.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
Have you ever considered searching records of incarceration to find your ancestors?
Whether researching a notorious family outlaw or a victim of early 20th century justice, there’s a good chance that you have an ancestor who has been incarcerated. Researching records of incarceration at local, state or federal penal institutions can reveal valuable family history information and also document shameful community patterns of social and economic abuse against blacks.
Join Sharon Batiste Gillins for an engaging discussion on the genealogical value of searching records of the incarcerated.
Sharon Batiste Gillins is a native of Galveston, Texas with paternal ancestral roots in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana and maternal roots in Fort Bend County, Texas. A life-long interest in her family's history led to an active involvement in researching African American family history over the past 25 years. While researching her own family, she developed an in interest in unique and under-utilized record systems and record groups. Some of her more recent work focuses on strategies researchers can use to analyze Louisiana’s Freedmen’s Bureau field office records for revealing, often personal information on freedmen ancestors.
Ms. Gillins is a member of the Galveston Historical Society, National Genealogical Society, and Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society. A retired Associate Professor at Riverside City College, she frequently calls upon her career background as a college educator to present workshops or deliver courses at regional and national conferences and genealogical institutes. She is also a member of the adjunct faculty at Samford Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research in Birmingham.
