Program Description
Say Brother presents a panel of lawyers from various practice backgrounds to discuss legal issues relevant to the Third World community. Host Barbara Barrow-Murray speaks with attorneys Wallace Sherwood (founder and first executive director of the Roxbury Defenders' Committee and currently a professor of law and criminal justice at Northeastern University's College of Criminal Justice), David Grayer, Sharon SooHo, and Charles Grabau, about the difference between criminal cases and civil cases, if Third World people are taking advantage of legal services available to them, the differences between public defenders and private attorneys, how to select a lawyer, if minorities can receive fair trials in the court system, and if minority lawyers are perceived as being equal in ability. Program includes viewer calls.
