Literacy as an Act of Creative Resistance: Joining the Work of Incarcerated Teaching Artists at a Maximum-Security Prison
Plemons, Anna
Community Literacy Journal, v7 n2 p39-52 2013
Considering the situated complexities and competing interest of exploitation and hope inherent in community literacy work, this article examines the ways that the Community Arts Program (CAP) at California State Prison-Sacramento complicates and also reifies archetypal grand literacy narratives and considers the place of such narratives within a broader argument for "literacy as acts of creative resistance" scaffolded by small, organic, tactical moves.
