People in High‐Incarceration Communities Talk about the Impact of Incarceration

(p.121) 6 In Their Own Voices
Imprisoning Communities

Todd R. Clear

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents Tallahassee, Florida community members' description of how incarceration has affected their lives, their families and their communities. These community members are from Frenchtown and South City, which are predominantly African-American communities and have the highest incarceration rates among communities in Tallahassee. The analysis of the experiences of these two communities shows both positive and negative consequences for neighborhoods' life and that the net result of imprisonment policy has not been solely positive.

Keywords:   incarceration, families, communities, Frenchtown, South City, Tallahassee, Florida, African-American communities, imprisonment policy
