StoryCorps Justice Series: Overcoming Implicit Bias

Jul 12, 2017

As part of our StoryCorps series on criminal justice, we bring you this conversation between two young attorneys.

William Snowden and Barksdale Hortenstine met through their job at Orleans Public Defenders. They're both in their 30's. Barksdale is white; William is not. They talk about implicit bias and how it relates to the criminal justice system.

This piece was produced by Eve Abrams, in partnership with The Justice Project, a StoryCorps initiative to preserve and amplify the stories of people affected by incarceration across the U.S. Learn more at StoryCorps.org.
