a viewing of the documentary Rikers: An American Jail.
The panel discussion will include Rev. Hector “Bennie” Custodio( featured in the documentary) and local leaders on prison conditions in South Carolina, re-entry and prison reform.
“The documentary RIKERS brings you face to face with men and women who have endured incarceration at Rikers Island. Their stories, told direct to camera, vividly describe the cruel arc of the Rikers experience — from the shock of entry, to the extortion and control exercised by other inmates, the oppressive interaction with corrections officers, the beatings and stabbings, the torture of solitary confinement and the many challenges of returning to the outside world.”
*may not be appropriate for young audiences, documentary contains strong language and some violence
