  1. This talk is very applicable to the R2W

    It explores how incarceration power and the techniques of containment were woven into the geographies of poor and working class Black people on Chicago’s South Side.

    Through and examination of housing, policing, and the production of masculinity, this talk demonstrates how the explosion of Black incarceration rates in the latter 20th century were enabled by the geography of incarceration in the neighborhood at the beginning of the century.

    Highlights the importance of the racialization of space, the role of containment in maintaining the subordination of black people, and the politics of mobility under conditions of ‘freedom.’

  2. FOR Anyone WITH MALE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE IN, OR HAVE BEEN IN PRISON:

    Linked below is an excellent research study done with men of color who managed to become successful, post prison release.

    The purpose of this research was to explore and describe the experiences men of color released from prison have in their post-release experiences in the community. after having been living back home in their community for at least three years.

    The goal of this study was to gain insight from the experiential knowledge of formerly incarcerated people.

    Factors are identified that enable men of color who make the social and psychological adjustments needed to get on with their lives post-release.

    A recounting of these experiences may inform policy discussions and
    reviews related to intervention alternatives for men of color currently incarcerated, and for those who are released.

    The study offers insights that will enable the reader to better understand this population, and to foster a development of additional methods to address the psychological challenges related to post-prison adjustment likely to contribute to their well-being post-release.

    In addition, insights may be gained on how in-prison programming
    might contribute in some way to successful reintegration.

    The following research questions were designed to obtain a better understanding of the post-release experience of men of color, who have remained outside of prison for three or more years:

    1. How DO THEY define success after prison?

    2. What WERE THEIR post-prison experiences pursuing success as THEY define it?

    3. IN THE MEN’S EXPERIENCE, how and in what ways did in-prison experiences shape THEIR pursuit of success post-release?
