There’s a traveling exhibit that aims to give people the chance to experience solitary confinement and learn about its effects on inmates.

The “Inside the Box” project invites people to spend some time in a full-size replica of a prison cell. Lori Mack (@lmackwnpr) of Here & Now contributor WNPR paid a visit to the exhibit during a stop in New Haven, Connecticut, and has our story.
