Stick Together and Come Back Home: Racial Sorting and the Spillover of Carceral Identity
Patrick Lopez-Aguado (Author)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
In Stick Together and Come Back Home, Patrick Lopez-Aguado examines how what happens inside a prison affects what happens outside of it. Following the experiences of seventy youth and adults as they navigate juvenile justice and penal facilities before finally going back home, he outlines how institutional authorities structure a "carceral social order" that racially and geographically divides criminalized populations into gang-associated affiliations. These affiliations come to shape one's exposure to both violence and criminal labeling, and as they spill over the institutional walls they establish how these unfold in high-incarceration neighborhoods as well, revealing the insidious set of consequences that mass incarceration holds for poor communities of color. 2
