Is Madison failing its African American residents? Check out this edition of APA to hear the conversation!

On Monday January 13th, our host John Quinlan sat down with pastor of the Fountain of Life Family Worship Center and founder and president of the Center for Urban Leadership Development, Rev. Alex Gee Jr. to discuss his editorial in The Capital Times, “Justified Anger: How Madison is Failing its African-American Community”.

Quinlan and Gee not only discussed the article, but they also examined the community response that the article has sparked. In addition, Quinlan and Gee stressed the importance of the conversation that Madison needs to have to make greater strides in closing racial disparities in our community.
