My Brother Moochie
- Regaining Dignity in the Midst of Crime, Poverty, and Racism in the American South
- By: Issac J. Bailey
- Narrated by: JD Jackson
- Length: 8 hrs and 24 mins
At the age of nine, Issac J. Bailey saw his hero, his eldest brother, taken away in handcuffs, not to return from prison for thirty-two years. Bailey tells the story of their relationship and of his experience living in a family suffering guilt and shame. Drawing on sociological research as well as his expertise as a journalist, he seeks to answer the crucial question of why Moochie and many other young black men - including half of the ten boys in his own family - end up in the criminal justice system. What role did poverty, race, and faith play? What effect did living in the South, in the Bible Belt, have?
