Race and Incarceration

Angela Hattery

Dr. Hattery’s 2018 book Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives are Surveilled and How to Work for Change interrogates the myriad ways that Black bodies are policed from the shooting to unarmed Black men by police, to wrongful conviction and exoneration (Central Park Five), to housing segregation and the school to prison pipeline. She has just come back from researching the experiences of inmates and staff in solitary confinement units and the role that solitary confinement plays in stoking racial antagonisms.
