Joshua explores the impact of mass incarceration on his family and his realization that his predominantly white classmates did not understand the phenomena in the same way.

As an African American male, Joshua Lee has a 1 in 3 chance of being incarcerated during his lifetime. He always knew that prison systems were corrupt, but paid little attention to the affects they had on communities filled with people of color. Little did he know, a book he would read in history class would change his views on incarceration systems forever.
