Guest Editor: Christopher Blackwell
An award-winning journalist currently incarcerated at the Washington Corrections Center in Shelton, WA. He is serving a 45-year prison sentence for taking another human’s life during a drug robbery--something he takes full accountability for. He was raised in a mixed Native American/white family in the Hilltop Area of Tacoma, Washington, one of the roughest places to live in the country– ravaged by over-policing, gangs, violence, and drugs. Christopher and his wife, Dr. Chelsea Moore, co-founded Look2Justice, a grassroots organization led by criminal legal system-impacted people that works to transform the legal system by providing civic education and empowerment programs for incarcerated people and their loved ones. His writing has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Boston Globe, HuffPost, Marshall Project, Insider, Jewish Currents, BuzzFeed, The Appeal, and many more. He is currently in the process of working on a book about solitary confinement.
