The Alabama Prison Arts + Education Program, or APAEP, will host our next Community Conversation on Wednesday, March 2, at 12-1 p.m.

This month we are thrilled to be joined by Michelle Daniel Jones, a doctoral candidate at New York University, or NYU. Daniel will talk about her experiences with the Prison History Writing Project at the Indiana Women's Prison, or IWP. After just a few weeks of research, the project began challenging virtually everything historians have said about IWP's founding and the first quarter century of its operation. She will also discuss the new methodological approach her team created to conduct research as captive persons and how the methodology informs her current dissertation project.

We hope you can join us for this very exciting discussion. The link to join may be found here.
