Citizen Provocateur: Ray Hill’s Texas Prison Show
Ex-con and gay activist Ray Hill founded “The Prison Show” radio program on Houston’s KPFT 90.1 FM station in 1980. Every Friday since, the show has connected Texas prison inmates with their loved-ones and friends on the outside who cannot easily call or visit. The show propagates a message of hope, positive thinking and news relevant to the Texas State Department of Justice. The documentary follows some of the individuals whose lives have been touched by “The Prison Show,” and follows the long journey Ray Hill has made from surviving prison himself as a gay, white collar criminal to becoming an ACLU award-winning activist.
