As a chaplain at the Cook County Jail in Chicago and as a sociologist studying mass incarceration, Dr. Reuben Jonathan Miller has spent years alongside prisoners, formerly incarcerated people, their families, and their friends to understand the lifelong burden that even a single arrest can entail. What his work reveals is a simple, if overlooked truth: life after incarceration is its own form of prison.
Miller’s new book, Halfway Home: Race, Punishment and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration, is a portrait of the many ways mass incarceration reaches into American life, sustaining structural racism and redrawing the boundaries of our democracy. It aptly describes the challenges that nearly all of JustDane's participants face. We are striving to reduce these challenges through our initiatives.
JustDane, with support from American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation and UW Madison's Distinguished Lecture Series, is excited to welcome Dr. Miller to Madison on November 9th to share his insight and delve into the topics of his book.
