At least one political leader calls it, "the newest form of slavery" - we're talking about the arduous task of restoring the civil rights of ex-offenders.  Virginia is one of only a handful of states that does not provide automatic restoration once the prison time, penalities and waiting period are completed.  On the next Another View, we'll talk about why this is such a critical issue for the African American community, how the process works, and what's being done to change the system.  Our guests include the Honorable Yvonne Miller, State Senator, 5th district and Vickie Williams-Cullins, owner of Open Door Communications.  Plus, mentoring on the Peninsula - Big Brothers and Big Sisters show you how it's done!  It's all on Another View, Friday, May 20th at 9P on WHRO-TV, digital 15.1.

Freedom Riders

Stream Episode   
Video Download     

From May through December, 1961 more than 400 African Americans and Whites risked their lives by traveling together on buses to integrate interstate transportation.  The "Freedom Riders" stopped through Montgomery, Alabama, where they were beaten and cursed.  And 13 year old Valda Montgomery was there when they came to her home for shelter and food.  On the next Another View, we'll talk with Dr. Montgomery about her experiences growing up in the midst of the Civil Rights movement which she chronicles in her book "Just A Neighbor".  And we'll meet a local student who's been invited to "get on the bus" with surviving Freedom Riders as they  all re-trace the original routes.  We commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Riders, on the next Another View, Friday, May 13, 2011 at 9P on WHRO-TV, digital 15.1.
