The Cost of Incarceration In One Baltimore Neighborhood

Matt Purdy

According to the Justice Policy Institute and Prison Policy Initiative in a report from February, as of 2010, 458 people from Baltimore's Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood or neighboring Harlem Park were in a Maryland prison. It's the largest number of any census tract in the state.

Sheilah talks about it with Marc Schindler, Executive Director of the Justice Policy Institute. And, we visit two men in Sandtown who have been to prison and back. Antoine Bennett is the director of Men of Valuable Action, or MOVA. Anthony Warren is MOVA’s Community Service Project Coordinator.


Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
