Local Activist Protests for His Right to Vote
Kenneth Barksdale is one of the millions of US citizens that will not be able to vote in this election because he is on parole. However, he is definitely not going to let his voice go unheard. Barksdale stood in front of the Federal Building in chains, with a sign saying "Negro Slave For Sale", to draw parallels between slavery and the current US prison system. In the video (see below) Kenneth explains why he went out, what he thinks of the current political scene and his views on our criminal justice system.
