About this Episode:

A Black boy in the U.S. has a nearly 1-in-3 chance of going to prison in his lifetime. For a white boy, it’s roughly 1 in 23. Some believe the “cradle-to-prison pipeline” for black men is a forgone conclusion; others push back. What’s undeniable is that going to prison has a devastating impact on the health of individuals and their families. In this episode, we explore how to change the incarceration trajectory for Black youth and increase opportunities for health.
