Kristin Henning, an author and advocate for children, joins Rahiem Shabazz in a discussion about her latest book, “The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth.” During their conversation, Kristin sheds light on America’s irrational and unfounded fear of Black youth, which has led to a long history of unjust arrests and wrongful convictions of Black individuals in the country. Shabazz delves into the stories of some of the most infamous cases, including the Scottsboro Boys, Emmett Till, and the Central Park Five. Listeners are encouraged to tune in with an attentive ear to gain a deeper understanding of this important issue.
