Prisoners Literature Project

Honoring Black History Month at the PLP

February 2021  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

February is Black History Month, and the Prisoners Literature Project is honoring the month by updating our book wishlist with a host of titles themed around the month.

“Black people are disproportionately incarcerated and policed, with Black Americans being almost 5 times more likely to be incarcerated in state and federal prisons than their white counterparts. This consequence of systemic racism motivates PLP to send books to further empower incarcerated people and fight for social justice.”

Please consider buying us some of the books on our wishlist to help us – and the incarcerated people we serve – during Black History Month. And once again, thanks for your support for the PLP – we genuinely appreciate it.
