A Poetic Justice Exhibit Now at ahha: "Not a Number"
It's well-known that Oklahoma has the highest rate of female incarceration in the US. On this edition of StudioTulsa, we profile Poetic Justice, an important nonprofit that, per its website, aims to "reveal the individuality and experiences of the women who inhabit [our] state's prisons. Poetic Justice seeks to [thus emphasize] the voices of incarcerated women through restorative and transformative workshops in writing, drama, and art." Our guests are the founder/director of this organization, Ellen Stackable, and a Poetic Justice alum, Angelina Cicone. Both are involved in an art exhibit on view at ahha Tulsa titled "Not a Number: Artists from the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center," which will be up through April 5th. (Please note that a special "Not a Number" event had been scheduled for the evening of Saturday, March 28th -- but this event has now been CANCELLED due to COVID-19 concerns.)
