Season 2022 Episode 4

About the Episode

California is the first state to prevent courts from criminalizing Black and Brown artistic expression, after passing Assembly Bill 2799—also known as the Decriminalizing Artistic Expression Act. We discuss how prosecutors are using rap lyrics against people of color, how this new law protects the free speech of artists of color, and prohibits racial bias within the criminal justice system.
