What Is Solitary Confinement Really Like?

Learn more about the experience of being in solitary confinement from a former prisoner who reconstructs his former cell in the middle of New York City.


In this video, Mualimm-Ak (a former prisoner who lived in solitary confinement) helps activists re-create his experience by building a replica cell to show New Yorkers what it's like to live in solitary confinement. They also speak about the HALT Act (Human Alternatives to Long Term Solitary Confinement), a proposal to the New York legislature for alternatives to isolated confinement.
