APRIL 28. "THE RACE TO INCARCERATE AND QUAKER PRISON WITNESS" A slide talk and book release celebration takes place at the 15th Street Quaker Meeting House, and looks at how the U.S. became the world leader in incarceration, and how comics are part of the solution. Graphic artist Sabrina Jones -- a member of the 15th Street Quaker Meeting -- will talk about her new book, "Race to Incarcerate," a "graphic retelling" of policy expert Marc Mauer's book of the same name. The book traces U.S. drug, sentencing, and prison policy over the last 40 years -- and how it has brought us to the record rates of incarceration we have in the U.S. today. The event is free, and copies of the book will be available for sale. Details at the 15th Street website
