Jordan-Makely, Chelsea and Dr. Jeanie Austin. “Outside and In: Services for People Impacted By Incarceration.” School Library Journal, 8 Sep 2021. “Yet the needs of people in jails, prisons, and other detention centers often go overlooked, in part because of lack of funding but also because of what Tracie D.

But through conversations with her preschool son, followed by talking to teachers, colleagues and parents, she came to realize it is the things we don’t say and the matters we don’t discuss with our children that find their way into racist dialogue and thinking.’
