On May 1, our sister site, Killing the Buddha, hosted an event in midtown NYC titled, “The Prison-Spirituality Complex.”  You can listen to the entire event here.  Nathan Schneider, editor at Killing the Buddha, writes at his own site, The Row Boat, “My instinct is that, with religion so centrally a part of the birth of the American prison disaster, religion will somehow have to be part of the solution.”  You can read Nathan’s interview with panel participant and author of The Prison and the American Imagination, Caleb Smith, in this month’s issue of Tricycle (subscription only).
