    Prison and Black Manhood: Truths, Lies and Myths

    Between 1972 and 1982, OldSoul was imprisoned in the following:
    U.S. Penitentiary Leavenworth, Kansas
    U.S. Penitentiary Marion, Illinois
    U.S. Federal Prison Terre Haute, Indiana
    Federal Correctional Institution Milan, Michigan
    Federal Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) Chicago, Illinois
    Cook County Jail Chicago, Illinois

    Because of what I feel is a mis-placed glorification of jail and prison, and the belief that going to jail gives one ‘gangster’, ‘playa’ or ‘badass’ credentials, I will be doing a series of presentations on ‘Prison and Black Manhood: Truths, Lies and Myths’, exclusively at BLACKVOICECHAT.COM as part of the Consciousness Raising On-Line Class on Sundays, 3PM EST. The incarceration and subsequent ‘institutionalization’ of Black males is one of the most devastating programs to Black People in the USA and the Black World, yet hundreds of thousands of young Black males have been tricked into thinking its ‘cool’ to go there; they'd rather go to prison than go to church. Find out the whys and hows of this and more, beginning Sunday, December 12, 2004, 3PM EST, at BLACKVOICECHAT.COM.
