In Banter’s second installment of the “Bridging the Dignity Divide” series, AEI Resident Fellow Gerard Robinson takes over as guest host. In part one of this episode, Gerard interviews Renita Seabrook who serves as an associate professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University of Baltimore. In part two, Ames Grawert from the Brennan Center’s Justice Program joins the show to discuss the legal basis for prison education. Both participated in an event at AEI hosted by Robinson and AEI Resident Scholar Stan Veuger on prison education reform policies.

About the “Bridging the Dignity Divide” Series

Over the next five weeks, Banter guests will address topics such as ending the opioid epidemic, expanding career and technical education, reintegrating the incarcerated into society, and promoting work and family formation to overcome poverty. This series is part of a broader institutional push to help close the dignity gap by creating a culture and economy where everyone is objectively and authentically necessary.
