About This Event
Artist Statement: The United States, with more than 5.1 million people confined in prisons or jails or under some form of correctional control, has the highest incarceration rate in the world. The United States also imprisons more of its racial minorities than any other country in the world. In Washington, D.C., the numbers are even higher--three out of every four young black men are expected to serve some time in prison. This project offers the first-person accounts and insights of formerly incarcerated men on the process of reentry. It casts light on their plight in the hope that we will do more to help these men succeed in becoming productive members of society and caring family members.
