Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy joins us for the fourth episode of Cultivar. Roy discusses his work in prisons, the covid crisis in prisons, anti-recidivism and more.
As a professor of English at Cal State LA, Roy directs a BA program at Lancaster State Prison, as well as his own organization, Words Uncaged. These programs provide platforms for men sentenced to life sentences to dialogue with the outside world. Roy’s projects offer opportunities for rethinking incarceration as well as imagine alternatives to the current prison industrial complex in the United States.
