Description

Whether or not the war on drugs and crime is effective law enforcement policy, more than 250,00 more American parents are in prison today than in 1991, the number of children with a mother in prison having nearly doubled in the same period. Seven percent of black children--nearly nine times more than white children--have a parent in prison. In all, 1.5 million kids in the U.S. are children of inmates, and the effects on their lives are profound.
