This week on episode 5 of 18° Degrees North, Brooklyn resident Tony Yarborough tells us what it was like serving 21 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. How did he finally regain his freedom? Host Zahra Burton has an exclusive interview.
Also we interview an attorney from the Innocent Project based in New York. They use DNA evidence to prove innocence of those wrongly convicted.
And the no-nonsense Guyanese born actress CCH Pounder from NCIS: New Orleans, The Shield and E.R. She speaks to us about making it in Hollywood as a Caribbean black actress and the surprising thing that her own country has never asked her to do.
