Prison/Culture free pdf

Over two million individuals are behind bars in US prisons, living in isolation from their families and their communities. "Prison/Culture" investigates the culture of incarceration as an integral part of the American experience through a compilation of stunning and often heartrending artwork by inmates as well as by artists on the outside, such as Sandow Birk and Keith Antar Mason, who address incarceration, criminal profiling, wrongful conviction, prison labor, and the death penalty. The book also includes essays on prisons and prison art by Angela Y. Davis and Mike Davis, and poetry by Amiri Baraka, Ericka Huggins, Luis Rodriguez, Sesshu Foster, and more.
