Our first guest is Professor Margaret Burnham, director and founder of the Civil Rights and Restorative Project at Northeastern University School of Law which she joined as faculty in 2002. Her fields of expertise are civil and human rights, comparative constitutional rights, and international criminal law. CRRJ engages students in legal matters relating to the 1960s US civil rights movement. A former fellow of the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe College and Harvard University's W.E.B. DuBois Institute for Afro-American Studies, Professor Burnham has written extensively on contemporary legal and political issues. We rebroadcast an interview with Law Professor Angie Bell who spoke to us last year about the cases of Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace known collectively at the Angola 3. Presently, Wallace is terminally ill and needs to be released. Sign the petition at angola3.org Professor Jason Bell, director of Project Rebound, lecturer at San Francisco State, and this year's recipient of LSPC's John K. Irwin Award, speaks to us about his work in rehabilitation with the formerly incarcerated. He has over 21 years of first-hand knowledge and expertise in working with incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, and at-risk populations to promote higher education as a method of reducing recidivism.

As he drove up from Southern California to Oakland this morning he speaks to us about his latest film about a topic and a people dear to his heart. The film is a part of Cine Acion, the Latino Film Festival closing this weekend. The screening is at EastSide Arts Alliance, 2277 International Blvd. in Oakland. ESAA has a free Final Fridays screening each month.
