Paulette Carrington

Dewittcarrington bytayarishapoe21 web

Paulette Carrington is the second woman released in Pennsylvania, originally sentenced to life without parole as a juvenile. In a collaboration with Mary DeWitt, she is leading tours in an exhibition that features portraits of women with whom she endured several decades of incarceration. Through sharing their stories, her own memories of them, and her experience growing up in prison, Paulette hopes to ignite the conversation about the criminalization and mass incarceration of women. Specifically in the exhibit, both Paulette and Mary hope to shed light on the racial injustice within mass incarceration, and the specific reparations to be considered for others who have spent their lives as part of a corrupted prison system.
