One out of every three black men between the ages of 18 and 34 is in prison, on parole, or probation in the United States. Out of the two million Americans incarcerated, half are African American. Much has been written and said about these numbers, but very little, if any, has come from the men to whom these statistics refer; until now. Beauty in Chains is an anthology of poetry by this silent majority, victims of America's incarceration infatuation.

 

We felt it was time for African American community to hear from their fathers, brothers, sons, uncles, husbands, and friends behind prison walls. Beauty in Chains is a dialogue with the black community from these men.

 

$24.99 incl. S/H & Tracking. Due to EXPERIENCE - ALL books are SHIPPED separately to avoid delays in prison mailrooms.
