DRIVING JERSEY

Tonight! at 10pm; Friday, 9/5 at 10:30pm

For most of us, our earliest experiences with education and learning begin at home with our parents. Before what seems like a lifetime of learning in classrooms, there are the first lessons in our living rooms. Our moms and dads are our at-home teachers and for the kids of educators, teachers are our moms and dads.

 

Meet educators from across the state that are making kids’ futures brighter, and their own more fulfilled in the process.

DUE PROCESS

Sunday, 9/7 at 9:30am; Tuesday, 9/9 at 11:30pm

Scottsboro: Justice Delayed, Justice Denied: It was one of countless cases of southern injustice.  Of black men falsely accused of raping white women.  Of lynchings, legal and otherwise.  Of innocent black defendants imprisoned – and worse.

The infamous case of The Scottsboro Boys, nine black teens, who, double-damned by Depression and Jim Crow, guilty of nothing more than riding the rails, found themselves sentenced to die. Late last year, the State of Alabama issued posthumous pardons.  The Scottsboro Boys were finally exonerated – more than 80 years too late.

We look at how they were framed, how they were freed after long years in prison, and how players as varied as the Communist Party, the NAACP and the U.S. Supreme Court all did their part.

Helping us understand the Scottsboro tragedy – and how far we have – or have not – come since: Rutgers Law Professor Taja-Nia Henderson, an expert on race and incarceration, and Rutgers-Newark Historian James Goodman, author of the seminal work, “Stories of Scottsboro,” a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
