Subject: Prisons

Date: Mar. 17



As the prison populations become more and more heavily populated by African American males, the number of black females with AIDS rises. This statement is the basis for a persuasive article by the Akron Beacon-Journal arguing that prisons are a breeding ground for the virus. While there is, of course, no conclusive evidence that black males are transmitting the disease behind bars, the Beacon-Journal uses testimony, statistics and common sense to make a compelling argument.
