freedom rising: from emancipation to incarceration
Freedom Rising: From Emancipation to Incarceration is a musical and dramatic exploration into the prison system of the United States. Facts about incarceration systems throughout US history combined with inspiring, emotionally packed music, and poetry from living prisoners make clear the similarities between 1800s America and the America of today. But in the deluge of dark fates and overwhelming circumstance, the text, poetry, and music reveal a glimmer of hope: needed reform is coming, perhaps slowly, but surely.
