The Criminal Brand: America’s Invisible Class
We are working to expand the audience of testimonies from youth and children affected by the cycle of incarceration, violence and disenfranchisement. This project has four goals: (1) to focus greater attention on the effect mass incarceration has on families, youth and children; (2) to provide a digital interface and interdisciplinary platform to explore the effects of parental incarceration on youth; (3) to compile a digital archive of sound-based testimonials of youth, children and adult children of incarcerated individuals; and (4) to conduct research forums to develop success strategies that empower and support youth affected by parental incarceration.
