The Prison Experience: In their own words

On May 5th a panel of formerly incarcerated individuals shared their personal histories, stories about their lives in prison, and insights into how those experiences set the tone for their reentry into the community.
Under the direction of moderator Cooper Levey-Baker from Sarasota Magazine, our panelists addressed aspects of prison social life and the personal challenges they faced while in jail, state prison, federal prison and supermax confinement or “the SHU” (segregated housing unit).
