Poets Creating Conversation asks poets to explore difficult issues wrapped around the history of America and reflected in the current discourse.
Poets Creating Conversation: Incarceration in America
“[P]risons do not disappear problems, they disappear human beings. And the practice of disappearing vast numbers of people from poor, immigrant, and racially marginalized communities has literally become big business.” – Angela Davis
The poet’s challenge: In the US, there are nearly 7 million persons under correctional supervision. Multiply that by friends and family and there’s a lot to talk about. During the month of May, The Whit will host an exhibit of art created by incarcerated persons offering a powerful physical context for this event!
