Tonight we have a special guest, Attorney Larry E. Williams, a civil rights attorney, who was Director of the Greater Watts Justice Center in the 70s and 80s. We talk about the inequalities in the criminal justice system and its impact on young black and brown men.
Mr. Williams was born in the Mississippi River Delta Town of Helena, Arkansas in 1944. As a Senior in High School, he migrated to Los Angeles and attended undergrad and grad school at UCLA in the mid-1960’s. He taught English and Speech at Manual Arts High School for one year before attending Columbia University School of Law in New York City from where he graduated. After Law School he became a Reginald Heber Smith Fellow and was the Directing Attorney for the Greater Watts Justice Center from 1972 to 1983 where he directed a staff of thirty. Thereafter, he entered private practice of law, primarily handling Criminal, Personal Injury and Real Estate Matters. He is based in the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles and handles a limited practice in Criminal Defense.

Join co-hosts Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) in a discussion about today's youth and the current thoughts and practices of testing in today's schools. Do these tests really work as a true indicator of a child's knowledge? It is good to rely so heavily on test results? Are school children actually learning? These are some of what will be discussed in this episode.
The School-to-Prison Pipeline is identified as a real and intense system in which students find themselves routinely suspended, expelled and often times sent to alternative educational programs or schools. Kids who find themselves in this situation ultimately begin to fall further behind in school, have juvenile contact, and end up in prison.
Join host Hakim Crampton as he reads from Chapter 3 of his book America's Pipeline to Prison.

Tribal Youth and Juvenile Justice: Promoting Resiliency, Youth Engagement, and Delinquency Prevention
American Indiana and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and youth have historically been overrepresented in systems, including the juvenile justice system. This has severely impacted AI/AN youth and also the tribal communities’ ability to provide resources and services to tribal youth and their families. Stephanie Autumn and Gerry RainingBird from the Education Development Center, Tribal Programs join this episode of Spotlight on Youth to provide an overview of the demographics of tribal youth at risk for or involved in delinquency matters, discuss the unique risk and protective factors, and share promising practices in prevention and intervention. Guests will also explore the complexities of juvenile justice reform in tribal communities as complicated by the potential multiple jurisdictional issues and the distinct traditions of each tribe.
