In honor of Martin Luther King Day, Carroll is collaborating with the Waukesha Public Library to bring Milwaukee lecturer and historian Reggie Jackson to campus. He will discuss "The 2.2 Million: The History and Human Cost of Mass Incarceration" exposes the roots of the current system of mass incarceration in this country, including the laws and policies that have made it possible to incarcerate over 2 million Americans. Wisconsin exemplifies many of the issues in this system, so we examine its correctional system in detail: where and why we’ve built prisons around the state, who’s in them, why our prison population keeps growing—and the cost to both families and communities back home.
