Public School Mafia: Part 2
Tuesday, 25 May
In 2015, Atlanta Judge Jerry Baxter sentenced ten people to almost 100 years in prison for racketeering. It ended one of the longest trials ever seen in the state of Georgia.
Except this was no normal racketeering trial. This is a tale of race and class with a central question at its heart. What causes a group of upstanding citizens, revered in society, to cheat? In the second of two episodes, we discover what really happened in the Atlanta Public School district.
And meet one of its employees who says what the media reported at the time isn’t what was going on at all.
A Somethin' Else production.
