Ruby J

Hi everyone! My name is Ruby J.  I’m a senior at the University of Maryland, majoring in communications.  I first become interested in the topic of mass incarceration when I watched the documentary “Slavery by Another Name.”  I noticed how African American men were being charged for petty crimes or crimes they didn’t commit, and also being harshly sentenced for them.  After watching that documentary, I realized  what happened back then, is happening in today’s world.

I hope this blog will be an eye opener for people to question the true nature behind mass incarceration and private prisons.
