Do you know that many have charted the evolution of the modern carceral system beginning with its roots in slavery, officially ended 150 years ago, and connect the movement to abolish slavery in our historical past with today's movement to abolish prisons?       

By centering the voices of currently and formerly incarcerated people through poetry, Meredith Nnoka '14, carceral justice advocate and published poet, commemorates (celebrates) Juneteenth, with a virtual talk that outlines the history of mass incarceration and the current national debate around criminal justice reform in the U.S.
