How did the US become the world leader in locking its people up?
How are comics part of the solution?
Race to Incarcerate, A Graphic Retelling tackles these questions with the vivid artwork of graphic novelist and15th Street member Sabrina Jones and the expertise of Marc Mauer, director of the Sentencing Project.
A thoroughly researched analysis of the “war on drugs” and “tough on crime” policies adapted in the form of a graphic novel, Race to Incarcerate may be particularly useful to Friends concerned with prison issues and racial justice.
Come see, hear and discuss how we can engage in this urgent issue.
Books will be available.
