Play • 34 min

When historian Kelly Lytle Hernandez was denied access to Los Angeles Police Department’s arrest records for her research on mass incarceration, she decided that she would not go down without a fight.

We speak with Kelly and her students about how they are using this data to create equations for reparations and liberation.
