Pontiac Correctional Center is a maximum security prison in the small town of Pontiac, Illinois. It’s the oldest in the state - founded in 1871 - and has a reputation for being one of the most violent. There is a guard at Pontiac who some staff praise for being tough and having their backs. But other staff and people in the prison say she is known for abuse. In 2019, she was investigated by the Department of Corrections and State Police. Investigators had obtained 427 of the guard’s emails, revealing the conversations she’d had with other staff when it seemed like no one was looking.

Episode 180: The Boycott

Episode 180: The Boycott

2022-01-1434:509

15 years after the Supreme Court ruled that school segregation was unconstitutional in Brown v. Board of Education, many schools across the South were still segregated. Some school districts actively blocked desegregation. North Carolina passed legislation authorizing tuition grants to white private schools, sometimes called "segregation academies." Members of the KKK held rallies in North Carolina, describing desegregation as "anti-Christian" and "communistic." When the Federal government pressured school boards to comply or lose their funding, many responded by shuttering Black schools and assigning Black students to formerly all-white schools. It was called "one-way desegregation." In a very rural part of North Carolina, Black students and their families decided to fight back. We speak with Dr. Dudley E. Flood about his work desegregating every school in North Carolina. Say hello on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Sign up for our occasional newsletter, The Accomplice.

this is about the saddest American tragedy I have ever been within a couple hundred miles of (Lago Vista). I was followed by a Travis County sherif's car. I didn't even know if I was aloud to drive in America because I am from British Columbia the sad reality is that I am a EuroCanadian (settler Canadian) so I was safe. if I was say Nak'azdli from Nak'bun Canada I risked lead poisoning. if I were a Black man from Canada I might have tasted the institutionalization of racism in the colour of lead and brass.

Every observance by the person interviewed is through a perspective that is requiring that race or gender be a contributing factor. Seeing as justice should always be unbiased these factors should never be part of the justice system. I realize that racial and gender bias is present because racially-biased and gender-biased people are part of the system. That is precisely what stood out about this person. She views everything through her own racial and gender bias, and she feels as though that's acceptable. I wish her well, but the justice system is no place for a person who actively follows those biases. She did well to have left off prosecuting.

It's dispairing when you hear about how deeply is unfairness rooted in the justice system. It just goes beyond one individual's good or bad intentions or actions.

Phoebe you are an amazing, lovely woman. I love listening to the compassion and sensitive way you engage with all the people you talk to, no matter who they are. Thank you so much, you inspire me to be a good person and to engage with other people in that same way - curious, with empathy, no judgement and an open heart,

I’m not saying that the administration in the past of my country (Australia) has not been responsible for insidious mass crimes against our First Nation peoples - they have. But we have only one mass shooting in our recent history by a disenfranchised marginalised youth. Gun laws were immediately changed.

What happened to the end of the story? She was talking about her daughter walking through the dining room at a restaurant. I'm dying to know what she said. Often the end of the stories cut off mid sentence.
