Voices Left Behind: Hurricane Katrina and the Prison Epidemic

Filed under: Special Feature — blackboxradio @ 3:22 pm

The Prisoners Creative Arts Projecs presented this event, which was recorded on January 16, 2006. Louisiana prisoners and their families faced a unique circumstance in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Prisoners were literally left behind and forgotten when tragedy struck. This event featured a unique panel of individuals who offer first-hand accounts of what it means to be left in flooding prisons; to live for days without food or water; to go weeks without contact from family or friends.
