In 2006, JJ Joseph was convicted of a violent assault on his wife, but against the odds he was able to turn his life around. He tells his story in the 2008 book, ‘Fighting for My Life’, with a forward written by social justice advocate Celia Lashlie. They both join Kim to talk about the book and how real progress on violence will only happen when men speak out against it.
