UCLA wins $3.65-million grant to build 'Age of Mass Incarceration' archive with LAPD records.

Check out this amazing news article from Los Angeles Times of how Professor Kelly Lytle Hernández, and other UCLA scholars won a $3.65-million grant to build 'Age of Mass Incarceration' archive with LAPD records.


"With a $3.65-million grant and a trove of Los Angeles Police records dating back decades, scholars at #UCLA have launched a new archival project aimed at independently preserving and dissecting the history of mass incarceration in L.A.


The project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and called “Archiving the Age of Mass Incarceration,” will seek to reveal in new ways how the Los Angeles region became a global outlier for imprisonment — with the largest jail system in the most heavily incarcerated nation in the world — and what the implications of that legacy are in the city’s most heavily affected communities." -Kevin Rector—Staff Writer LATimes
