This week, we are airing selections from a panel discussion that took place earlier this month here in Bloomington. Andrea Ritchie and Victoria Law, both of whom were featured on Kite Line earlier this month, sit alongside Andrea Sterling at a panel called “Building Community Resilience”. In it, these women discuss the myriad ways that female bodies are controlled, policed, and punished. As Ritchie notes, rates of incarceration amongst black women have been growing rapidly, and the panelists discuss the systemic reasons for this startling growth. They also discuss some ways in which affected communities respond, and how the blind spots in carceral feminism produce terrifying outcomes.

We will have the full panel available on our website.

Kite Line

Kite Line is a radio program devoted to prison issues around the Midwest and beyond. Behind the prison walls, a message is called a kite: whispered words, a note passed hand to hand, or a request submitted to the guards for medical care. Illicit or not, sending a kite means trusting that other people will bear it farther along till it reaches its destination. On the show, we hope to pass along words across the prison walls.
