Voices for a World With Care, Not Cages:
From the Zine Team to an Oral History


Dear Humanities Behind Bars members and supporters,

We are excited to share that our next Zine Team meeting is THIS THURSDAY, MAY 9TH FROM 7 - 9 PM at the Muse Writers Center (2200 Colonial Ave, Suite #3, Norfolk, VA 23517) in Room 3.
On Thursday, we will be reviewing submissions to the zine. If possible, please bring a laptop or mobile device to read submissions. As always, light refreshments will be provided. If you need a ride, please contact us. Looking forward to seeing you there - we encourage you to bring friends! The more, the merrier. #AbolitionWriteNow
More Info on the Zine:
Our zine is an inside/outside collaboration on the theme of love as an agent of social transformation, or what Assata Shakur calls "contraband love" as a force capable of building communities of care as we break down systems of harm. We are going to press in mid-June, so we will be continuing the editorial process throughout May. If you would like more info, please contact Meghan at:


Humanities Behind Bars members Nicholas Harper, Derek "DJ" James, Tanesha Westry, Alison Reed, and Danielle Goldstein recently recorded an oral history with Ashley Reed at Suffolk Public Library! Please have a listen on the Suffolk Speaks SoundCloud here.

Come dream and scheme a just world with us!

Toward abolition,

Alison Reed, Program Director & Co-Founder
Nicholas Harper, Zine Team Coordinator

Meghan Morris, Graduate Research Assistant
Danielle Goldstein, Student Justice Coordinator
Casey Guditus, HBB Treasurer & IWOC Liason
