Just why did actor and producer Isaiah Washington decide to join the #WalkAway movement?

What, through his eyes, is the significance of the First Step Act, and its role in the process of prison reform in America?

And how does political correctness fit into all of this?

Epoch Times senior editor Jan Jekielek recently sat down with Isaiah Washington, an actor and producer who started his career in Hollywood in a number of Spike Lee films. He is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Preston Burke in television show Grey’s Anatomy. More recently, he starred in the science fiction TV series The 100.

They discuss his career, criminal justice reform, identity politics, victim mentality, and Washington’s unique take on the issue of reparations.

American Thought Leaders is a new Epoch Times show available on Facebook and YouTube.
