Religious Life in an American Prison
Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Four inmates—two Christian and two Muslim men from South Philadelphia—are serving life sentences at Pennsylvania’s maximum-security Graterford Prison, and all of them work in Graterford’s chapel. Joshua Dubler tells the story of one week in the prison chapel, and talks about the many uses prisoners make of their religions. He’s the author of Down in the Chapel: Religious Life in an American Prison.
