The Radical Imagination: Imagining a Transformational Criminal Justice System

Most Americans have an opinion about President Elect Donald Trump, but member of the "Central Park Five" Yusef Salaam has a unique personal connection to our new President.

On this episode of "The Radical Imagination," Mr. Salaam appears with host Jim Vrettos to talk about his experience with the corrupt criminal justice system, where he spent his formative years after being wrongfully convicted of committing a crime that sent shockwaves through New York City.

Mr. Salaam will share his thoughts about President Elect Trump's role in his conviction, and what it might reveal about the Trump administration's approach to criminal justice in the United States.

Later in the show, founding member of the Revolutionary Communist Party Carl Dix weighs in briefly to share his point of view on the state of our criminal justice system and what needs to be done to fix it.
