Inside nerd culture at Solano State Prison

Mar 18, 2019

From the series Uncuffed:

In prison, segregation is usually a way of life. But that’s not the case for the nerds.

Each weekend, men gather in the gym for games of Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering.

Ignoring, race, religion, and creed, these men have set aside their differences to play games and trade comic books.

I sat down with Randy Mouton, one of these men, to ask about it all.

"Be you. Whatever makes you comfortable, just do it."

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