SORT BY Relevancy
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.

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.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.

How can we stop The New Jim Crow? Mass Incarceration of African American Men.
Mass Incarceration is the topic of discussion in the American society. All across borders incarceration is a problem and a great burden on the American people and communities. The reading "Masked Racism" speaks to the profiling and social steering of certain groups; Blacks and Hispanics. It examines the new, but really old, tactics of government to control populations, groups and or cultures of people.
Our informative readings are path ways to necessary discussion, awakening of consciousness and ignite participation. Thursday, April 17, 2014 we will discuss and share your views, wisdom, knowledge, experiences and more exposing the real problem is it us or them?
Today's guest is Barbara Paradiso, a pioneer in organizing academic programs for educating professionals working in the field of domestic violence at the University of Colorado's, School of Public Affairs. Yes, we can provide interpersonal violence awareness/education to the public, and make every effort to organize the legal and justice systems. However, the real question is: can abusers be rehabilitated? We know that abusers can stop their behavior when the fear of getting caught looms large, but can the abuser be clinically treated to "cure" his/her behavior?
Do we have data on the rate of recidivism, and the efficacy of treatment for abusers?
Why has this societal problem of interpersonal violence received so scant attention? While the current NFL domestic abuse "scandal," has resulted in a public out cry, will these recent incidents, not to mention the long history of unreported/reported interpersonal violence, go under the radar until another tragic incident occurs?
Barbara Paradiso is currently the Director of the Program and Center on Domestic Violence at the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver. Barbara has worked on behalf of battered women and their children for more than twenty years as an advocate, administrator and activist. Prior to her position at University of Colorado Denver, she served as the Director of Domestic Violence Programs for the Sunshine Lady Foundation of North Carolina. For twelve years, from 1985-1997, Barbara was the Executive Director of Boulder County Safehouse. Barbara has been active in the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence as Co-Chair of the organization, Chair of the Legislative, Membership, and Finance Committees. She is currently Board President for the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and a newly elected member to the Board of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
