It’s that time of year again. Time to mount up with 40 other riders and take a three-day trek to the Louisiana State Penitentiary and raise funds for families who have to ride buses to visit their loved ones locked inside. This is my third year being part of the Nola-to-Angola bike ride, and is likely to carry the most personal significance. Whether engaged in a conversation or focused on my thoughts, the struggles of American mass incarceration are reaching a critical era.
