Fighting the Power

Due to a Capital City Rescue Mission policy requiring patrons to sit through a Christian prayer service before receiving a free meal, Eugene Burt stopped seeking help from the mission; Eugenie Mukeshimana and her daughter, Mystica, moved to Albany to start a new life after fleeing the Rwandan genocide of the mid-1990s; Roumen Dimitrov, who was doing postdoctoral research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, was forced to leave the university and return to his home country of Bulgaria after becoming embroiled in a dispute over intellectual property; after four years of being knocked around in family court, which included a no-contact order with his children, George Ihlenburg decided to take his case to the court of public opinion, a decision that earned him six months in jail.
