One Attorney’s Crusade Against Racism In The Law

Academics and activists can opine on the ways the criminal justice system is racist; it’s a different story to live that reality from childhood. Brittany K. Barnett is an attorney who helped win executive clemency from President Obama for seven of her clients and an entrepreneur focused on social impact investing. She joins host Krys Boyd to talk about being the daughter of an incarcerated mother, her pro bono legal work and her resolve to challenge the status quo. Her memoir is “A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice, and Freedom.”
