This is a living, interactive annotated bibliography. It is intended to be anamorphous document- subject to additions, subtractions and edits from the both thereader and generator. The acquisition of knowledge is not limited to academic textsalone. It is a collective gathering of life experiences, people, places and events,supported research, literature and course work, which allows us to acquire andinterpret new information. To exclude non-traditional citations from this bibliography, would not only be an inaccurate portrayal of my learning process, itwould be a blatant injustice to the life experiences and real people who havecontributed the
to my knowledge on these topics.These citations, along with field experience, life events and collective stories fromother’s experiences, have informed the SouljournerTruth Project and the blog postscontained within. Therefore, the bibliography consists of traditional academicsources as well as people, places and events in the field that have lent an influentialforce to the creation of this blog. Much like the blog, the bibliography is a work in progress and will continue to evolve in synchronicity with the learning process.The format will flow as follows; traditional academic sources, primary sources(e.g. people, places, events, blogs, websites), and source documents (such aslegislation, policies and budget documents). Each source will contain a brief description and justification for its place in this bibliography.
THE LIVING BIBLIOGRAPHY: A shared collective of life experiences, people,events and academic texts that have informed the SoulJourner Truth Project
I. ACADEMIC TEXTS- Journal Articles, Policy Analyses, and Peer ReviewedResearch
1. Human Rights Watch. HRW, (2003).
 Ill equipped: U.s. prisons and offenders with mental illness
.Retrieved from Human Richts Watch website:http://www.hrw.org/reports/2003/usa1003/index.htmThe Human Rights Watch report, released in 2003 provides a comprehensive review of the policiesand practices affecting mental issues both in and outside prison walls. It further denotes theinadequacies and pitfalls of the prison industrial complex’s ability to address the growing population of mentally ill inmates. Startling statistics and compelling stories lend themselves to thelegitimacy of the report’s scope. This report inspired me personally, to investigate further into theissue of mental health issues in Richmond, particularly in regards to people like Joseph, a homelessindividual living with a mental illness.2. Matsuda, K. (2009). “Impact of Incarceration on Young Offenders.”
 National Institute of Justice
.U.S. Department of Justice. Rockville, MD.This Article offers a startling look at how the Juvenile Justice systems perpetuates recidivism andnegative behaviors among other things. In my documentary with JB, who was a re-offender sinceage 17, he made a statement that “after I got locked up in DJJ, my life took a downhill turn.” Thisactually prompted me to look up some articles and facts on the matter and what I found was prettyeye-opening.
3. Richmond City Community Criminal Justice Board. (2011). “Biennial Plan FY 2011-2012.”City of Richmond Community Criminal Justice Board Task Force. Richmond, Virginia.Retrieved from:http://www.richmondgov.com/JusticeServices/documents/CommunityCriminalJusticeBoard2011-2012Plan.pdf This plan presents the work of the RCCJB members complemented by three task forcesassigned to examine specific issues involving the effectiveness of alternatives toincarceration. The task forces focused their efforts on alternative facilities (AlternativeSentencing Facility Task Force); community programs (Community Programs/ResourcesTask Force); and administrative, legal, and policy issues (Administrative Legal/PolicyAnalysis Task Force). The RCCJB was put together as a response to Mayor Jone’s inquiry aboutthe over-crowding in RCJ. There are many valuable statistics, demographic pieces of informationand analyses that help portray the unique conditions at RCJ. It was the first document of its kind inover a decade to do this and continues to be an accurate reference for many news stories, articlesand blog posts.4. Robertson, J. R., & Jones, M. R.
