Lessons Learned From Prison, an Interview with Clifford Miller and a Re-play of Qadhafi

Jaws of Justice programmer Keith Brown El will have a talk with Clifford Miller, an inmate at Western Missouri Correctional Center.  Clifford believes he is innocent of the charges that hold him in prison, and he will speak on his experience with the criminal “justice” system.

Jaws of Justice Radio Hour will have a re-play of our  show with Qadhafi, aka James Shelby, who has been incarcerated in Missouri for over 22 years. While inside, Qadhafi was active with the NAACP prison branches and he helped found the Missouri chapter of IWW’s Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC). Since his release last year, Qadhafi has continued to be a leader in the struggle. He worked with KC Tenants to pass legislation that prevents landlords from discriminating against felons in housing. He founded his own non-profit – HugYoHood. He has worked as a community advocate for Elad Gross’s campaign for Attorney General of Missouri.  Stay tuned to hear us talk with Qadhafi about his activism, contributions and insights to the movement as a formerly incarcerated person.
