Dr. Calvin Smiley, Associate Professor of Sociology, Hunter College, City University of New York presents: "Purgatory Citizenship: Reentry, Race and Abolition." The story of reentry after release from incarceration is a complicated journey.

Through interviews, focus groups, and ethnographic observations with people making this transition from confinement, this talk advocates for abolitionist solutions.
