Welcome to tonight’s broadcast of New Abolitionists Radio where we take a look at the news concerning what we call prison slavery made legal after the so-called abolition of slavery in 1865 in the United States. We will go over some news from around the country and before ending the program we will share a profile in freedom from prison slavery as well as a past abolitionist. Special Guest on our panel tonight will be Rosaura Torres, author of “Abuse Hidden Behind The Badge“.The book serves as her autobiography and will take you into her personal experience with domestic violence and the law. The book tells of a true survivor’s strength and courage to fight back against injustice by those whose duty it is to “protect and serve”. Show Notes.
