This Freedom Café will examine ongoing issues in mass incarceration from the perspective of those working within the system and hoping for positive changes. The evening will include a performance from Everett Company and allow for unique conversation between the Everett artists, individuals working within the criminal justice system, academics writing about mass incarceration, and audience members.
Everett’s Freedom Cafés are a series of free presentations that create a dialogue at the intersection of social justice, the humanities, and the arts. They bring together artists, educators, activists, scholars, and community members to share their knowledge and experiences in an open dialogue with the audience.
Funding is provided by the Rhode Island Council for Humanities as well as Brown University’s Creative Arts Council, Swearer Center for Public Service, and Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
