THE DEEP DIVIDE OF RACISM IN PRISON
Kevin Bruno was just a child when he first encountered racism. It wasn't until his incarceration as an adult, however, that Kevin was able to confront how racism had made him a victim and had led him to victimize others.
In this video from Prison Fellowship®, Kevin shares how racism, ignorance, and a lack of compassion can contribute to a violent culture behind bars. Recalling his own experiences, Kevin says that racism "was palpable in prison. It was thick in prison." Until he joined the Prison Fellowship Academy® at the Carol S. Vance Unit in Texas. In the Academy, prisoners showed genuine compassion and concern for each other, regardless of race. "I didn't realize it until later how much [compassion] had broken … down so many walls," he says.
