"African American Women with Incarcerated Mates" by Avon Hart-Johnson




After four decades of mass incarceration in the U.S., the disproportionate number of black men in prisons has contributed to an epidemic of black women struggling to support fragile families. Yet the literature is scant on how African American women are affected by the imprisonment of their partners. Drawing on case studies and firsthand accounts, the author brings needed perspective to the political, economic and psychological challenges they face--including the experience of symbolic imprisonment or "serving time on the outside."


"African American Women with Incarcerated Mates: The Psychological and Social Impacts of Mass Imprisonment" is available at Amazon.com.
