“It’s Hard Out Here if You’re a Black Felon”: A Critical Examination of Black Male Reentry

Black men with criminal records experience intersectional oppression. Utilizing a critical ethnography lens and interviews with nine different Black men in the process of reentry, this study examines the distinct experience of being a Black man and reentering society after incarceration. The authors identify four key themes: stigma, masculinity, employment and family support.
