- Gaskew presents a prison-based education designed to address a prevalent racial politics of shaming, self-segregation, and transgenerational learned-helplessness. He explores the Black counter-culture of crime and tasks incarcerated Black men to draw upon the strength of their cultural privilege to transform from criminal offender into student.
