Black Men and the Prison Industrial Complex

There are more black men in jail than in colleges. Statistics show that 50% of black men would’ve served time in prison or a juvenile detention center by the age of 30. The incarceration rates of black men are higher compared to their white male counterparts. Why the disproportionate rate of black men in prison? What about effective programs that help them re-enter society? My guest Reverend Henry Price, a once convicted felon turned social activist and pastor, joins me to discuss his take on the prison industrial complex, what lead him to activism, and why he feels like black men keep going to prison.
