Play • 47 min
On the morning of August 21, 1991, a group of Cuban detainees took over a federal prison in Talladega, Alabama, and demanded their freedom. But how did they get here? And what became of them after? In the new season of NPR's White Lies, hosts Chip Brantley and Andrew Beck Grace unspool a decades-long story about immigration, indefinite detention, and a secret list. In the first episode, Brantley and Beck Grace search for answers to the questions raised by a single photograph.
