Rethinking Prison Reentry: Transforming Humiliation into Humility describes a prison-based education pedagogy designed to address a prevalent racial politics of shaming, self-segregation, and transgenerational learned helplessness. So many incarcerated black men face insurmountable psychosocial obstacles when attempting to make the successful transition back into ownership of their lives. Tony Gaskew confronts the issue of redemption and reconciliation head-on by critically examining the “triads of culpability” when it comes to crime and justice in America: (1) of those who commit crimes; (2) of those who enforce criminal laws; and (3) of those who stand by and do nothing. He explores the growth of a black counterculture of crime that has created modern-day killing fields across urban neighborhoods and challenges the incarcerated black men trapped within its socially constructed lies, helping them to draw upon the strength of their cultural privilege to transform from criminal offender into incarcerated student.

After Bloody Sunday investigates the ways in which the events in Derry on January 30, 1972, have found representation in photography, film, theatre, poetry, television documentary, art installations, murals, music, commemorative events, legal discourse, eyewitness testimony, and pressure-group campaigns. Thirty-six years after the killing and wounding of twenty-six civil rights protestors in Derry, the new independent tribunal chaired by Lord Mark Saville of Newdigate is close to publishing its findings. The Report of the Bloody Sunday Inquiry promises to be the most comprehensive act of truth-recovery yet attempted in relation to the many atrocities that scarred the North of Ireland during the three decades of political conflict. Mark Saville has the formidable, and perhaps impossible, task of establishing the definitive truth of Bloody Sunday. His attempt comes in the wake of many other earlier versions of the events of 30th January 1972 that have also claimed to present the truth of what happened that day. After Bloody Sunday examines the portrayals of the events of January 30th, 1972, and its devastating repercussions in photography, film, theatre, poetry, television documentary, art installations, murals, commemorative events, and legal discourse. The authors consider their veracity, their mechanisms of authenticity, and their assumptions that a particular medium--be it film, or language, or visual art--can somehow articulate the truth of Bloody Sunday. In the course of six thematically-organized chapters, the authors analyze productions ranging from high-profile popular forms of entertainment--such as Paul Greengrass's feature film Bloody Sunday and Jimmy McGovern's made-for-television film, Sunday--through to lesser-known treatments in poetry (Thomas Kinsella's Butcher's Dozen), drama (Frank McGuinness's Carthaginians and Brian Friel's The Freedom of the City), and visual art (The Bogside Artists and Willie Doherty). They place special emphasis on the commemoration events held each year in Derry in which the families of the victims have--over many years--remembered their dead and injured, while at the same time building a highly-effective campaign that resulted, finally, in a new Inquiry. Drawing on their expertise in the fields of literature, cultural theory, media studies and visual art, the authors have produced a thoroughly interdisciplinary approach towards the many representations that claim, with varying degrees of confidence, to tell the story of what really happened on the streets of the Bogside on the afternoon of January 30, 1972.
