The parable of the blind men and an elephant is a story of a group of blind men who have never come across an elephant before and who learn and imagine what the elephant is like by touching it. Each blind man feels a different part of the elephant's body, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk. They then make a determination of what creature they are touching based on the limited knowledge. This week we explain the 4 competing groups attempting to dominate the US justice system narrative. What groups? What narratives? What's the difference? What do they have in common? Is it a problem? How? Using music, poetry, and dialogue, we'll discuss all that and more. As always, we'll also bring the words of our abolitionists ancestors back to life for a new generation in our Bridging The Gap segment. Abolition Today is available for streaming on all major podcast platforms. Program archives www.abolitiontoday.org Video playlists www.youtube.com/abolitiontoday Remember to like, follow and subscribe. If you don't, the ancestors might haunt you until you do.
