Rita "Bo" Brown, the "Gentleman Bank Robber"

We now delve a little deeper into the George Jackson Brigade. As you heard in part 1 of this series on the George Jackson Brigade, Rita "Bo" Brown was a former member of the group and served 8 years in federal prison.  She is out now and is still very much active in prison activism.  She sat down to talk more about the spirit of radical politics in the 70s and her own personal story of how she got involved with the Brigade. This is part 2 of a 2-part series on the George Jackson Brigade.
