Black culture behind bars: White supremacy, censorship, and resistance in an Ontario women’s jail

Anger towards the police comes from the violence they have inflicted on us. There are so many ways we can be doing this, reaching out and volunteering in our communities, writing about what we have experienced, and letting the world know. Knowledge is key, and information is power.”
