In Part 5 of Redlining & White Noise, we talk with our friend, Jay Jenkins, Harris County Project Attorney with the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition. Our topic, Telling the Truth About History, builds on last week’s conversation about the discovery of the skeletal remains of 95 African-Americans in Sugar Land, Tx. As an attorney and advocate for criminal justice reform, Jay shares how he got involved with Reggie Moore’s efforts, how this discovery impacts our understanding of history, and how the convict-leasing system ungirds mass incarceration in America.
