“I believe that a jury of one’s peers should be representative of the accused person. That a black man, such as Julius Jones, should have more than two ethnic minorities weighing the facts of the case. I believe that when people show us who they are, we should believe them the first time. Therefore, a juror who refers to a black defendant as “nigger” is racially biased, and should not be allowed to continue on the jury.” – Cece Davis
Julius Jones is on death row in Oklahoma, despite maintaining his innocence and evidence that he was wrongfully convicted. In a case packed with misinformation, on top of racial discrimination, i’ll have a conversation with Cece Jones-Davis, Teaching Pastor at the Table in Oklahoma City, and founder of Justice for Julius, a criminal justice reform movement.
