In this special episode, Jared talks to a prisoner named Bennu Hannibal Ra-Sun, founder of the Free Alabama Movement. Bennu is currently serving a life without parole sentence in the state of Alabama and we talk about his first interactions with the criminal justice system as a child. This is a conversation about family separation, denial of due process, institutional racism, judicial and law enforcement collusion, and the impact that these practices can have on the trajectory of someone’s life.

The interactions Bennu describes altered the trajectory of the lives of six teenagers in 1988 in profoundly negative ways. This is the story of the Gadsden 6 and it is a story that matters to the individuals who remain without parole opportunities due to the circumstances Bennu describes, but it also matters to the thousands of people across the US who are still behind bars because of similar treatment at the hands of the state.
