The parable of the blind men and an elephant is a story of a group of blind men who have never come across an elephant before and who learn and imagine what the elephant is like by touching it. Each blind man feels a different part of the elephant's body, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk. They then make a determination of what creature they are touching based on the limited knowledge.

This week we explain the 4 competing groups attempting to dominate the US justice system narrative. What groups? What narratives? What's the difference? What do they have in common? Is it a problem? How? Using music, poetry, and dialogue, we'll discuss all that and more.

As always, we'll also bring the words of our abolitionists ancestors back to life for a new generation in our Bridging The Gap segment.
