Black, Jewish, and incarcerated

Oct 4, 2018

From the series Uncuffed:

Damon Cooke and JulianGlenn “Luke” Padgett are old friends. They did time together at San Quentin before being transferred to Solano Prison. They also share a common identity: Both of them are Jewish men of color.

"Being black and Jewish isn't outside of who I am. It's simply who I am."

Uncuffed is produced by men at Solano State Prison. Learn more about them here.
