Solitary Gardens

Confronting Criminal Injustice

This Fall, we were blessed to work with longtime Girl’s Club collaborator and A Blade of Grass Fellow Jackie Sumell on her Solitary Gardens project in a larger event sponsored by ABOG.

Big shout out to all the collaborators and ABOG for a fantastic evening – you can catch the full panel here hosted by WGRL and featuring panelists from Re:Entry Think Tank and Solitary Gardens discussing the work they are doing to confront and change our criminal justice system.

 

 

Sowing Seeds of Hope with Jackie Sumell

Jackie Sumell is an incredible artist, activist  and compassionate friend of the Girls Club.
Her work seeks to expose and change the abuses perpetrated by the criminal justice system in America.
We caught up with Jackie in her home town of New Orleans, at her Solitary Garden project. What resulted is more of a discussion than an interview, one that we hope more people will be having after The Solitary Garden tour this Fall.
