As part of her ongoing series of discussions and programs about Restorative Justice, Kiplyn Primus talks with Tracy Rolle, community advocate and author of NCHARGE, A Guide To Managing A Result Driven Life After Incarceration.

Through her worked with a loved one in the criminal justice system, Rolle developed a knowledge base and some strategies that can help people in prison transition back into society with a legitimate second chance, and help their families keep it together during difficult times.

Join us Saturday morning at seven for The Local Take With Kiplyn Primus as we continue our ongoing series of interactive talk programs about Restorative Justice. Kiplyn will be joined by City of Atlanta Restorative Justice Board Member Artis Brunson, and they will take your calls, live. The recent upsurge in high profile police killings of young black men here and around the country has taken the issue of criminal justice reform off the back burner.
