To Sokeo Ros, dance is more than an art form. It’s a catalyst for change; a means of self-discovery.
This hour, we sit down with Ros. We talk about the experiences that shaped his career as a dancer, as well as his investment in issues concerning refugees and mass incarceration.
Later, we also hear from the executive director of the Connecticut-based nonprofit Family ReEntry.
But first: the verdict in the shooting death of Philando Castile. What should we take away from the jury’s decision to acquit Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez?
