Misled: NEW EPISODE: Jail Cells> Dorm Rooms: The Fate of the Black Man in America

We are SUPER excited to bring this all-new episode of Misled. Jail Cells> Dorm Rooms: The Fate of the Black Male in America.

Click on the video below to watch an all new episode of, Misled: Jail Cells > Dorm Rooms: The Fate of the Black Man in America
This mini-doc examines the effects of mass incarceration among black males and their families. We wanted to talk about the effect of incarceration from various perspectives in order to show the impact it has on an entire family, and culture. We examine the effects of poor education, stress-management and other factors that further perpetuate the cycle of mass incarceration among black males. In a heartbreaking interview, a child shares how much he misses his father who is currently incarcerated. You don’t want to miss this show! Please watch, share, and join in the conversation via comments on our website and YouTube Page and Social Media outlets.
