100:1 The Crack Legacy
100:1 The Crack Legacy traces the roots of today’s violent policing and mass-incarceration back to “the war on drugs.” Journalist Christopher Johnson delves deep into how our government’s war on crack cocaine in the 80s and 90s ushered in a slew of laws that helped militarized police forces and erode basic constitutional rights for certain Americans. Through the stories of people who were on the ground when these laws went into effect, this series investigates how the aggressive policing and politics put in place then are still impacting black Americans now.
