Episode Description:

Buzz Alexander in conversation with Gopi Kallayil on the Public Access TV show Change Makers. Buzz Alexander is professor of English literature at the University of Michigan and Carnegie National Professor of the year in 2005. It's been two decades since Alexander founded the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP), a University of Michigan-based organization of students, faculty, and community members who hold creative and performing arts workshops at Michigan prisons, juvenile facilities, and high schools. In his book "Is William Martinez Not Our Brother?: Twenty Years of the Prison Creative Arts Project, Alexander details the project's history and growth, along with accounts of some of PCAP's notable successes and failures, and portraits of some of those who've participated over the years, whether as students, organizers, or prisoners. He talks of the societal, cultural, and legal issues that motivate PCAP's work, specifically "the mass incarceration of American citizens and its devastating effect on countless neighborhoods, families, and millions of American- and foreign-born children."
