Behind Bars: On punishment, prison & release
Lady Unchained (Author)
In 2008, 21-year-old Lady Unchained got involved in a fight in a club while trying to protect her sister.
Serving 11 months of her prison sentence, her life changed completely. Inside, Lady Unchained began to write, while battling isolation, loneliness and the fear of being wrongly deported. These notes became powerful bars of poetry, capturing first-hand the broken justice system and the racism rooted within it.
Wide-awake poetry, Behind Bars traces how Lady Unchained's identity was irrevocably changed during her sentencing, time in prison and release.
Behind Bars proves there is life after prison.
