In this week's DJ Sessions, we spoke with KCRW's Raul Campos about "southern fried soul" from Texas and a dance duo from Los Angeles.
An extraordinary new book of photographs called “Grace Before Dying” shows us a different side of the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, which has a reputation as one of the most dangerous prisons in the country.
The photos show the inmates, who volunteer in the prison’s hospice program helping other inmates suffering from cancer and other terminal illnesses in their final days.
Photographer Lori Waselchuk told Here & Now’s Alex Ashlock, “These photographs may challenge stereotypes about incarcerated people and I hope inspire solutions to improve the criminal justice system.”
Throughout the week, Here & Now is looking at the impact a raise in the minimum wage would have on states, the federal government and workers.
