Race's Role in Prisons [article excerpt]
Burlington Free Press, July 15, 1981, p. 1.

Description

Race, like gender, was something that was not taken into much consideration when imprisoning individuals at first; meaning, white males took priority for imprisonment. Initially, the concern was that imprisoning black people with whites would cause an 'infection' of whites. Eventually, black people were in separate prison facilities from whites and then became integrated. Now, it is interesting to look at race in order to see how black people and people of color are the majority in prison settings, despite being the minority of the population (in Vermont, especially).
