Powerhouse in the Legal Field Talks About Lack of Trust and Ways to Move Forward
Cary, NC – The Hunt Institute is pleased to announce the release of the latest episode of its podcast series As Yet Untold, featuring an interview between Karol V. Mason, President of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and The Institute’s President & CEO, Dr. Javaid Siddiqi.
In addition to speaking about her career-long focus on criminal justice reform, especially in Black and Brown communities, Mason shared what it has been like to be a first in a few of her roles and the unique responsibility that comes with that. She also lets her Tar Heel pride shine through.
“It was a pleasure having the opportunity to hear what Karol has been doing throughout her career and continues to do to bring truth to the term ‘justice’ in our criminal justice system,” said Dr. Siddiqi. “We need people like her to keep pushing for tangible, substantive change and to build trust.”
“I have known Governor Hunt for longer than I care to admit,” said Mason. “He has always been known as our Education Governor. When he set up The Hunt Institute, I was ecstatic that he was continuing that legacy. I was pleased to have the chance on this podcast to reflect on my time in North Carolina.”
The podcast was created to provide an outlet for public figures to share a more personal side of themselves, away from the political spotlight. As the name implies, the hope is that each guest takes the opportunity to reveal something they haven’t shared to a wide audience before.
Episodes of As Yet Untold are currently slated to release twice a month, and the next guest will be Governor Phil Bryant, former governor of Mississippi.
