Ignorance bringing a stop to knowledge in the life of a inquisitive mind


My uncle Jay went to jail when I was a kid –– and I remember how everybody made a big deal about visiting him, making sure he was okay, constantly talking about his sanity and preparing something good for him to come home to. I think all of this was extremely important, but it was strange how my aunt was just left out of the conversation. Jay went to jail, taking his income with him, and our family had to band together to make sure my aunt and his kids were taken care of while he was away –– and that is the part of the criminal justice system that is too often left out of the conversation.

We create so much language around the people who are incarcerated and don't focus enough on the families trying to piece their lives together. That other side of incarceration is captured beautifully in the new Starz series "Blindspotting." comments
