Authentically Detroit is a BridgeDetroit partner podcast that tells the stories of Detroiters' lives through exposition and interview. In this episode, hosts Orlando Bailey and Donna Givens explore the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic in Michigan prisons where there are over 1,800 confirmed cases of coronavirus and former inmates contend that it is virtually impossible to social distance behind bars. Shaka Senghor, noted author and media personality, Victoria Burton-Harris, attorney and contender for Wayne County Prosecutor, and Yusef Shakur, co-director of the Michigan Roundtable For Diversity and Inclusion are featured guests in this episode.
