Ep 184: Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones Talks Politics & Islam on the Prisonworld Radio Hour
The Prisonworld Radio Hour is winding down 2018 with a series of shows to make it a November to Remember! Joining cohosts Jenny & Rufus Triplett is Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones. He’s the first Muslim Councilman in the City of Cleveland and that doesn’t go without controversy.
Within recent years the political climate has been overwrought with violent and divisive rhetoric against Muslims.
