Aug. 3, 2020: Lew Powell


Aug. 3, 2020

Lew Powell, a longtime Charlotte resident, is a retired journalist. During his retirement he has focused on two North Carolina cases that for him raised fundamental issues on the administration of justice.

The first was the Little Rascals Day Care case from Edenton. More recently he has focused on the plight of Junior Chandler, who after 25 years remains jailed in a Madison County case, which also involved allegations of abuse of children. Powell writes about those cases and others on his website and on Facebook.

In this session, Powell discusses those cases, the search for Covid-free educational opportunities for all children, and his big head.
