Peacemakers: Serving jailtime for peace

A longtime expert on the peace movement is in Buffalo Thursday. Rosalie Riegle appears at D'Youville College for a 3 p.m. session with students in the college's Blue Lounge to discuss "Crossing Lines and Doing Time: The Many Voices of Social Justice." At 7 p.m. she appears at Canisius College to speak on "The Heart of the Peace Movement: Nonviolent Resisters Doing Time for Peace."

Riegle is an author, professor and oral historian of nonviolent resisters who serve in jail-time for peace.  WBFO's Eileen Buckley met with Riegle to discuss her work.
