What are the long term effects of mass incarceration? Are we creating a sub-class of people with little or no political and economic power? How did we get to this point? What can we do to reverse the tide of mass incarceration? Our guests will attempt to answer these and others questions on this interesting topic. Join us and give us your opinion on the long term effects of mass incarceration.
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on the troubling issue of mass incarceration in the United States and its impact with some extraordinary guests who can speak to the issue both from the outside in, and from the inside out. What’s behind this uniquely American practice of widespread incarceration? Is it really about guilt or innocence? Or is it a bigger question of social justice?
Joining us to sort this out is well-known actor and author of Letters to a Young Incarcerated Brother, Hill Harper, writer and convicted felon, David Harris, and Harvard criminal justice specialist, Ron Sullivan. Together we will discuss this issue of mass incarceration and its implications for the future of our nation.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
Mass incarceration is an epidemic that has been sweeping this country for quite sometime. The United States locks up more people than any other nation on the face of this earth! Tonight we will be interviewing some dedicated people that are speaking up against this practice that is plaguing our nation.!
First up Rick Flare, Mega Buck$, and Mook Montana tell the story of Charleston S.C. aka the Geechie City, then Rick Ross speaks on Mass Incarceration in the U.S. and how hostages like Terry Young are being held captive as modern day slaves!
Tonight we are locking this conversation down and throwing away the ideals that it's a badge of honor to head to prison. Why is it that our youth and so often our fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers think it's cool to have a prison record? Tonight we speak with Mr. J. Jondhi Harrell, Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Returning Citizens (www.tcrcphilly.org). Mr. Harrell is a National Dialogue speaker and has claimed a dynamic voice in this plight of Mass Inceration. Through Mr. Harrell's efforts he is providing formerly incarcerated individuals with a life line as respected returning citizens. You don't want to miss this episode!
Between the ages of 20 and 29, one black man in nine is behind bars. For black women of the same age, the figure is about one in 150. For obvious reasons, convicts are excluded from the dating pool.
Looking only at the non-incarcerated population, black women are 40% more likely to go to college. They are also more likely than white women to seek work. One reason why so many black women strive so hard is because they do not expect to split the household bills with a male provider. And the educational disparity creates its own tensions. If you are a college-educated black woman with a good job and you wish to marry a black man who is your socioeconomic equal, the odds are not good." - The Economist
Yes. Economists agree that in the Black community, the Black woman is the "man". The Rise of the Black superwoman is now a reality. Why isn't the community embracing this change and using it to their advantage? Is the male ego that sensitive? Are we really aware of the effect mass incarceration has ( and will continue to have) in our communities?

What is the effect of mass incarceration on urban black families?
More than seven times as many people are incarcerated in the United States as in Europe. The main victims of the prison boom are minority, particularly African American, men, who, as sociologist Bruce Western has found, are eight times more likely to have served time in prison than white men. The effects of mass incarceration extend beyond the prisoner and his immediate experience of confinement, and can have a significant impact on the prisoner’s family. A slew of recent studies by Western and others suggests that the wave of mass incarceration contributes to the decline of families and the social fabric that binds them, leading to the further disintegration of already-disadvantaged inner-city neighborhoods.
