Colors visited fourteen prisons in fourteen different countries to explore every dimension of incarceration. The world’s total prison population represents one of the fastest-growing communities on earth. Colors staff spoke to people both in and out of prison in the United States, in South Africa, in Mexico, in Colombia and in ten other countries. The answers our reporters obtained confirmed one irrefutable fact: in its present form, prison doesn’t work. This is why Colors decided to take the opportunity offered by the feature to open a wider-ranging debate on prisons and prisoners.
