Dr. Courtney Robinson’s father went to prison when she was just 6 months old and he was only 17. Her personal struggles of hardship and shame from having an incarcerated parent helped to shape her and to guide her research on the impact of incarceration on black families.
Join Dr. Robinson as she breaks down America’s history of mass incarceration and that legacy’s enduring impact on all children of color — regardless of whether they personally have or have had a loved one in prison.
Learn more about what black families and their advocates can do to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline and ensure those who have been to prison get a fair shot at turning their lives around for the better.
