Society tends to forget the minds that get locked up in correctional facilities. In comparison to the amount of change happening in our world today, little of that is focused on the people who are trying to establish their lives after months or years in prison. Dr. Robert Smith, professor, and researcher says “We’ve crafted this notion that if you’re incarcerated, you’re different, you’re on the margins of society.”
In this podcast, the thoughts and experiences of men and women incarcerated and their hunger for a better life are revealed. There are only a few
individuals who have experienced this hunger in those that reenter society. Host Beverly Taylor sits down with Dr. Robert Smith, Michael Carriere, and Shannon Ross, a collaboration of university life and the incarcerated to innovate the delivery of resources for men and women looking to establish themselves after release.
