Feet for FEAT, Ricky Atkinson & Robyn Maynard

This week we bring you three segments:

The first is an interview with Jessica Reid from FEAT for children of incarcerated parents who is running from Toronto to Ottawa to raise money for their prison visitation program.

The second is an interview taped with Ricky Atkinson, former leader of the Dirty Tricks Gang who did more than 30 years in prison in the Kingston area. He recently released a memoir, The Life, Crimes and Hard Times of Ricky Atkinson. I caught up with him at a book-signing at the Kingston Chapters.

Our third segment is an excerpt from a presentation by Robyn Maynard about her new book, Policing Black Lives: State Violence in Canada from Slavery to the Present.
