Dr. Mary Cohen is a leading scholar exploring community music making within prison contexts. Our conversation explores the redemptive, restorative, and connective empowerment of choral singing as building imaginations of possible selves and ubuntu, or connectedness. This podcast blends conversation, quotes from Andy Douglas' book Redemption Songs: A Year in the Life of a Community Prison Choir, and sound clips from the Oakdale Community Choir.
