States of Incarceration is a national traveling exhibit that explores the roots of mass incarceration in our own communities to open a national dialogue on what should happen next. The exhibit was created by over 500 students and others deeply affected by incarceration in 20 cities, including University of Minnesota students who examined settler colonialism and the high rates of incarceration for Native Americans in Minnesota.
States of Incarceration is a project of the Humanities Action Lab, a coalition of universities led by Rutgers University-Newark working with issue organizations and public spaces to create traveling public projects on the past, present, and future of pressing social issues.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, National Endowment for the Humanities, Whiting Foundation, Open Society Foundations, and Mellon Foundation.
