Getting Arrested At Moral Monday

Produced by

Jedediah Purdy, a law professor at Duke University, is one of more than 800 people who have been arrested in a series of political rallies in Raleigh, N.C., called Moral Mondays.

In this conversation, he tells host Dick Gordon that he didn’t expect to find himself among the singing, chanting protesters. But, he says, North Carolina NAACP president William Barber's blend of religious and constitutional language moved him to come forward and be arrested in an act of civil disobedience against his state’s Republican legislature.
