Incarceration or Modern-Day Enslavement: Exploring the Link between Contemporary Corrections and American Slavery: Are you planning for a career in corrections or law enforcement? Want to know more about African American history? If so, then this is the learning community for you! This learning community will explore the links between the institutions of incarceration and slavery from both a historical and contemporary perspective. For example, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ended slavery in America "except as a punishment for crime ..."
