BET special on felon disenfranchisement issues

As detailed in this item from the Sentencing Project, BET News has a special segment running this weekend on felon disenfranchisement.  Here is a description of the program:

In “Locked Out: Ex-Cons and the Vote,” BET News correspondent Samson Styles investigates how disenfranchisement laws affect African-American turnout at the polls.  As one of the 5.3 million people in America who has lost the right to vote due to a criminal conviction, Styles sets out on a journey to regain his own voting rights, explore the state-to-state differences of disfranchisement laws, and investigate the national effects of such legislature. "Locked Out: Ex-Cons and the Vote" airs Friday at 11:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
