18:40-24:10 - LOUISIANA’S GU272 - A Catholic Order is looking to right a wrong done hundreds of years ago. The Jesuits are pledging a hundred million dollars in penance to the descendants of slaves they once owned and sold to land owners, many of them in Louisiana. They became known as the GU272. The money pledged will be pumped into the descendants’ truth & reconciliation foundation. Organization and church leaders say that money will be used to start racial healing projects and will be doled out to descendants in the form of scholarship money and other projects. LPB’s Kara St. Cyr sits down with foundation president, Joseph Stewart, and Jesuit priest, Father Kasecki, to talk about the long-term implications of the commitment.

24:10-25:33 - CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM IN LOUISIANA - LPB hosts a virtual preview screening of the Independent Lens docuseries Philly D.A., which chronicles the campaign and aftermath of a reform minded district attorney in Philadelphia in 2017.
