Abolition Today is a weekly online radio program with a specific focus on modern slavery as it is practiced through the 13th amendment of the US constitution and by private for-profit prisons worldwide.
Today is the December 13th, 2017 broadcast of New Abolitionists Radio.
As always, we’ll have discussions, examine current news, and connect all the dots about modern legalized slavery.
• Our Abolitionist in Profile tonight is James G. Birney. One time slave owner. He’s also the only person in Alabama who is pinned so far on “The Abolition Map of America,” an interactive map that shows people and places from the abolitionist movement.
• In the segment ‘For Freedom’s Sake. A History of Rebellion.’ We will remember Kingdom Comin’: The Largest Slave Rebellion in U.S. History. It’s a matter of perspective.
• Our Rider of the 21st Century Underground Railroad is Alabama inmate Anthony Ray Hinton who in APR OF 2015 walked out of prison as a free man after 30 years on death row.
