This episode we were joined by prisoner rights and prison industrial complex activist and organizer, Mac Gaskins for an in-depth interview on the ongoing Hunger Strike at Red Onion Prison in Virginia, as well as the nefarious impact of mass incarceration in America
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.
Mass incarceration is an epidemic that has been sweeping this country for quite sometime. The United States locks up more people than any other nation on the face of this earth! Tonight we will be interviewing some dedicated people that are speaking up against this practice that is plaguing our nation.!
Tonight we are locking this conversation down and throwing away the ideals that it's a badge of honor to head to prison. Why is it that our youth and so often our fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers think it's cool to have a prison record? Tonight we speak with Mr. J. Jondhi Harrell, Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Returning Citizens (www.tcrcphilly.org). Mr. Harrell is a National Dialogue speaker and has claimed a dynamic voice in this plight of Mass Inceration. Through Mr. Harrell's efforts he is providing formerly incarcerated individuals with a life line as respected returning citizens. You don't want to miss this episode!
Juvenile Corrections has become an industry through the privatization of juvenile correction facilities. This big money business has increased significantly over the past decade and now 40% of America's incarcerated youth are housed in private facilities. A decade ago, Florida Judge Ron Alvarez was so horrified by the descriptions of "a fetid, graffiti-covered jail called the Pahokee Youth Development Center that he compared it to a 'third world country that is controlled by some type of evil power' . The evil power in question at the time was named Correctional Services Incorporated. Correctional Services Incorporated began with its humble beginnings of is now run as Youth Services International. Judge Ron Alvarez was astounded that this corporation still does business with the State of Florida.

The disturbing truth about how Our Oppression creats a fundamentally unfair criminal justice system toward Blacks, and how Blacks are fed into the Prison Industrial Complex.
We take a hard look at root causes of crime and punishment- inequities in arrests, bonds, sentencers, etc.
We will takle controversial subjects as the deep-seeded societal prejudices of some judges, the anti-black biases of some jurors, the black defendant's blind belief in the fact that if they confess everything will be ok, etc. etc.
