The Not Old Better Show: Backstory

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m host Paul Vogelzang. This is the second installment of “Backstory,” our latest show, because “Family is Everything.” For the sake of my posterity, as well as yours, I’ve begun a new Not Old Better Show,  Backstory, and this is our second installment.

Today’s story is about Fresno California’s first black judge, Hugh Wesley Goodwin, who was also the first black lawyer in Fresno County, California.  Goodwin drew both criticism and praise nationwide for sentencing some people convicted of misdemeanors to church or Bible study.

The story is written by VJ Vogelzang, and was first published in 1977.
