The 1999 drug busts in Tulia, Texas, were initially hailed as great progress in the War on Drugs, but became emblematic of the racial divides in Tulia and elsewhere. KERA will air the Independent Lens documentary Tulia, Texas on Tuesday at 9 p.m. To get you ready, Think discussed the cases with retired justice Ron Chapman, who presided over the evidentiary hearing that led to the cases being overturned, and Alan Bean, the founder of the advocacy group Friends of Justice, which fought for the release of the Tulia convicts. Think airs Friday at 7:30 p.m. on KERA (Channel 13). It airs again Wednesday at 1:30 a.m.
