The Prisoners Literature Project made a recent appearance at the Spirit-Talk Conference at the African American Museum and Library of Oakland (AAMLO), and it was a great success.

The conference, which was organized by PLP volunteer Rochelle, discussed subjects including AfroSurrealism, comics, and social justice, and the PLP’s Lara was integrated into one of the main panel discussions.

Along the way, the PLP distributed 35 flyers and collected four boxes of books, as well as raising money via participant donations – and raising our profile in general.

Thanks again to both Rochelle and Lara for continuing PLP’s community outreach in such a vibrant way in 2016.
