We Own Our Words is a creative writing zine featuring original poetry, essays, short stories, and drawings by Breanna, Chelsea, Fermina, Lisa, Sabrina, Shawn, Shellie, Sheryl, Soy, and Tatïana, who are all currently incarcerated at Washington Corrections Center for Women. Echoing the grassroots prison publications that are included in Illustrating Injustice: The Power of Print, We Own Our Words opens channels of communication that disrupt the dehumanizing isolation strategies systematized within carceral institutions.
Exhibition Dates: February 27, 2021 - May 09, 2021.
Location: Upper Level Galleries
