Frontline Video on Solitary Confinement

While our Lenten Compact is concluded, the issue of mass incarceration and corrections in the US has not gone away.  Recently, PBS showed a Frontline documentary called “Solitary Nation”.  It is a very disturbing (and difficult to watch) look at the effect of solitary confinement on inmates–some of whom have been locked in the Special Housing Unit for over a year.  Watch the video online at http://video.pbs.org/video/2365229709/.  Frontline has numerous articles that relate to the issue.

On April 29, Frontline will present “Prison State”–a look at mass incarceration.  Check your local PBS station listing for details.
