Max & Yusuf cover Rikers jail and all the horrors behind that island of death. We'll be joined by Dr Stewart who has spent the last 3+ years on Rikers awaiting a trial.
Unlike just about every other coverage you've seen, we examine this hell on earth from the perspective of Slavery Abolitionists and not as prison abolitionists or reformists. 

Max will be live on location in Selma Alabama during the annual Backwards March marking March 6th "Bloody Sunday" — when thousands walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
We'll also commemorate the 12th anniversary of March 4th For Freedom 2010. The 1st national organized protests against legalized slavery in the post antebellum era.
God willing, we'll be joined by Tag Harmon and Dr Stewart who has spent the last 3+ years in Rikers without a trial.

As always we will bring the fire with awesome clips and music mixes as well as bringing the voices of the ancestors back to life for a new generation in our Bridging The Gap segment.
