Join renowned artist and activist Bryonn Bain (Lyrics from Lockdown) and transformative justice practitioner Claudia Peña (UCLA Prison Education Program / For Freedoms) as they host a For Freedoms News Special Report. The program focuses on the injustice of mass criminalization as seen through the eyes of people who are currently and formerly incarcerated or impacted by this system.
On stage at the Brooklyn Museum, Peña and Bain will coanchor a live show that includes a segment called “News from the Inside,” featuring an incarcerated correspondent reporting from prison. The artist-commentators will discuss the correspondent’s accounts with audience members.
This program is presented as a follow-up to For Freedoms News, an artist-led reimagining of television news launched during a fall 2022 residency at the Brooklyn Museum.
