Justin Chin Tribute and Teacher Fired after Unit on Central Park 5

On APEX Express, we pay tribute to poet Justin Chin, who died the morning before Christmas at age 46. Poet, educator, visionary, his loss is felt deeply. We are joined by Kirk Read, a writer and nurse and friend of Justin’s, along with friend Philip Huang.

On APEX, we talk with New York City High School teacher Jeena Lee-Walker who was fired from her job after several tense exchanges with supervisors about her lesson on the Central Park Five.
