I am feeling the true importance of pairing a memoir with other non fiction on a topic. This book gave my reading of The New Jim Crow more depth and personal struggle with the realities of a criminal justice system that more strongly effects black boys and men and the mentally ill.

Great read. Patrisse Khan-Cullors' memoir is heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. Cullors is a compelling writer, making this book hard to put down.

This is a powerful, eye-opening, must-read about racism, homophobia, and our dangerous prison system (and so much more). Highly recommended. We can't fix our problems until we more thoroughly understand what's really happening in America.

It's heartbreaking and maddening to read about the things that have happened to one person, one family, as it always is. I appreciate the chance to read and process this context. There's always so much more to learn.
