Byron Price: Entrepreneurship is Critical to Solving the Mass Incarceration and Recidivism Problems

byron price 2

by Byron Price – Your Black World 

Dr. Boyce Watkins has asked me to contribute to the book Ryan Mack and he are authoring, which has largely spun out of Ryan’s effort to help the African American community achieve economic empowerment through financial literacy. I applaud what the two of them are proposing as well as Michele Alexander and her efforts to mitigate the impact mass incarceration is having on our community. They all are on the right track, but I am concerned that their efforts will be undermined by the continuous inability of our community to develop industries, which employ the ones they are trying to help.
