Imagine being arrested for taking pictures of a farm, harassed for reading a storybook to children, or jailed for displaying a photograph in a museum. Censorship like this seems unimaginable, but it’s real and happens every day. Bleeped tells these stories. Each episode relives a David and Goliath tale of an individual who triumphed over censorship from a powerful organization, showing that if you’ve been wronged, you can fight back and win!
Before a jury convicted Alfonzo Tucker of a felony, he had never voted in an election. Then, while incarcerated, he read books about civil rights leaders who lost their lives fighting for the rights of African American's to vote and became inspired. When he was released, he tried to register to vote, but Alabama refused to let him. Alfonzo became one of the 6.1 million disenfranchised ex-felons.
