Dear Friend of Drugreporter!
A powerful speech about the intricate relationships among racial injustice, civil rights, mass incarceration, felony disenfranchisement and the war on drugs in the United States. Reverend William Barber is a Protestant minister from North-Carolina, he has been fighting in the front lines of the voting rights movement following the footsteps of Rosa Parker and Martin Luther King Jr.. He led the “Moral Mondays” protests. He delivered this speech at the Abbessinian Baptist Church, one of the oldest baptist churches in New York City on the occasion of the interfaith session on drug policies ahead of the UNGASS. It is worth spending time on watching it!
