Prison From The Inside Out offers a rare opportunity to see who we are as a nation through the eyes of our “justice” system; a view from deep inside the prison system that helps us understand what needs to happen at the individual and systemic levels for any possibility of change to arise.  Heartbreaking and heart-opening, Prison From The Inside Out reminded me of what hope feels like in the depths of despair. Its insights into the process of healing for formerly incarcerated men and women should make it required reading for those in
the justice system and for pertaining college classes.”
