Prison for Profit, How Racism Never Died After Jim Crow

Started June 21, 2021

Abstract or project description

Even after Jim Crow was outlawed in the United States, people of color were jailed at a disproportional rate compared to other racial groups. In my research project, I will be discussing how the Prison Industrial Complex has harmed all communities in the United States.
