Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman and show commentator Shasme Jackson as they talk to Pastor Annie T. Montgomery and Ayanna Harris about the quest for justice for Marissa Alexander and The Free Marissa Now campaign. A campaign that is engaging people in the US and all around the world with social justice action that help support the call to free Marissa Alexander. The show will also take a closer look at how domestic and sexual violence can have deadly consequences for victims, and the racist sexist stereotypes society paints of women, especially African American women who defend their lives against these attacks.
Marissa Alexander is a mother of three children and did not have a criminal record before this incident.
Marissa's husband has a documented history of violence and domestic abuse toward women. In a jealous rage, Marissa's husband violently confronted her while she used the bathroom. She was assaulted, shoved, strangled and held against her will. She was prevented from escaping and was not able to call 911.
Her husband was asked to leave repeatedly. He and his two sons, were supposed to have exited through the front door but, did not. Her husband entered the kitchen wich leads to the garage and saw Marissa was unable to leave via the malfunctioning garage door. Her husband yelled "Bitch I will kill you!" and charged toward her. Marissa had retrieved her liscensed and registered gun which she owned for years before even meeting her husband – from her vehicle. She held the weapon in her right hand down by her side as he yelled, "Bitch I Will Kill You! And charged toward her. In fear and desperation, Marissa Alexander lifted her weapon, turned away and discharged a single shot in the ceiling. As she stood her ground – that single shot prevented him from doing that which he had threatened. He ran out of the house where he contacted police and falsely reported that Marissa Alexander shot at him and his 2 sons. The police took Marissa Alexander into custody. Alexander's husband admitted that he was the agressor, threatened her life and was so enraged that he did not know what he would do – this being under sworn statement in November of 2010.
Alexander's husband was arrested for domestic violence twice – once for abuse against Alexander. That attack landed Alexander in the hospital.
