Toby Dorr, in 2006, helped an inmate escape from prison. They went on the run for 12 days, and of course, she got caught, and I ended up with a 27-month prison sentence. And during that time, Dorr realized that so many of the women I was in prison with had children; I had children too, but my children happened to be adults, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t scar them or hurt them. My being in prison, in fact, still has the effects of it today, and I think it’s just tragic.

The new program, Connecting KC on Cascade TV was launched for the first week in May with a feature on generational connections. Host, Carl Boyd, is a member of Friendship Baptist Church, a Congregation of Jesus Christ. In a recent, special program at the church, Friendship youth role-played as Civil Rights era students and activists. It happens that there are elder members of Friendship who participated in the very marches and demonstrations depicted by the youth. This inaugural “Connecting KC on Cascade TV” episode shows the coming together – the connecting – of the young people who study history and the elders who made the history being studied. Their presentation on this debut program sets the stage for future “Connections” programs, promising to show how other, positive, connections are being made: spiritually, academically, racially, economically, socially, technologically, medically, and more. Please watch for (and, prepare to archive) Connecting KC on Cascade TV.
