Writing Our Way Out: The Podcast Episode 1: The Race Question

This is the show where we probe all the conditions, traps, and turning points on the path to prison and the way out.

Subcribe to our show at Spotify.

On this episode, we ask what happens when African-American children first encounter the reality of racism. What do they do with it? How do they process it? Can their encounters with racism influence their behavior? Could it even influence the turn to crime?  

Joining Dave for this episode are his Writing Our Way Out: Memoirs from Jail co-authors Kelvin Belton, Terence Scruggs, and Stan Craddock.
