Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Staff @ 3:26 pm


by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

In the video below, Jeff Johnson, Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous discuss an issue that is very dear to me:  the problem of mass incarceration in America.  As part of our Never Going Back initiative (which we hope you’ll sign up for),  our goal is to align 10,000 committed African Americans who are willing to do whatever it takes to make this terrible problem go away.

  2. Thanks , I’ve recently been searching for info about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I have discovered till now. But, what about the

  3. The very root of your writing whilst sounding reasonable

    originally, did not really work properly with me personally after some time.

    Somewhere within the sentences

    you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short
    while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and

    one would do nicely to fill in those breaks.
    When you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up

    being amazed.

  5. I must show appreciation to

    this writer for bailing me out of this particular

    difficulty. Because of surfing around throughout the internet and meeting

    proposals which were not productive, I figured my life was

    well over. Being alive without the

    approaches to the difficulties you’ve solved all through your main write-up is a serious case, as well as those which might have adversely

    affected my entire career if I had not discovered

    the website. Your personal training and kindness in handling all things was

    tremendous. I’m not sure what I

    would have done if I had not come across such a

    subject like this. I am able to at this moment relish my future.
    Thanks for your time very much for the specialized and

    sensible help. I will not

    think twice to propose your web site to anyone who would
    need counselling

    on this matter.
