December 15

Rough Justice: Media And The Realities Of Prison Life

The Paley Center will look at how fiction and nonfiction programming has raised awareness of the realities of prison life and is helping to shape the debate on crucial issues surrounding the incarceration problems, including inequality, poverty, justice, and human rights. Our panel of experts will offer diverse perspectives and approaches to media’s portrayal of the prison system today — from the documentary Scared Straight and The House I Live In to prime-time series like Oz and Orange Is the New Black to an innovative hip hop show — as well examine such recent justice issues as calls for reform to the Rockefeller laws and the Michael Brown case unraveling in Ferguson.

Rough Justice: Media And The Realities Of Prison Life
Mon., Dec. 15
1-3 PM
The Paley Center For Media
