Putting An End To Segregating HIV Prisoners In Alabama

Last week, the Alabama Department of Corrections announced the end of its practice of segregating prisoners with HIV. This came as a result of a successful lawsuit filed by the ACLU. Former inmate Louis Henderson is HIV positive and was one of the lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Alabama Public Radio's Ryan Vasquez recently spoke with Henderson, and askedĀ about his experience in the Alabama prison system and what the end of the segregation policy means to him.
