Capitol Journal – June 21, 2024

Did you catch Capitol Journal this week? It’s a good show!

We’re covering everything from the special MLB tribute game a Rickwood Field to the Department of Corrections boosting its prison guard staff.

Randy Scott reports on the Capital City’s Juneteenth commemorations, specifically the opening of the Equal Justice Initiative’s new Freedom Monument.

Jeff Sanders reports from the coast on how ALEA is working with local authorities and meteorologists to prevent drownings as part of its Rescue Swimmer program.

Both timely stories!

Speaking of ALEA, Secretary Hal Taylor joins me in studio to talk about that Rescue Swimmer program, Alabama’s new hands free cell phone driving law and State Troopers’ focus on keeping Alabama highways safe during this busy summer driving season.

Historian Richard Bailey joins Capitol Journal to explain the history of Juneteenth and how some special Alabamians played a role in racial reconciliation after the Civil War.

And Huntingdon College President-elect Anthony Leigh is in studio to discuss his new role leading the historic institution and the college’s special place in Cloverdale and the Capital City.
