Day 9 of ‪#‎30for30BNV‬
Today’s prompt: “Where does our silence live?” 

This is inspired by the animated short “The Box.” Every year, thousands of teens are placed in solitary confinement cells in juvenile halls, jails and prisons nationwide. This animation tells the story of Ismael “Izzy” Nazario and the time he spent in solitary confinement in New York City’s Rikers Island jail. This story is based on an investigation by The Center for Investigative Reporting and was created using real audio from an interview with Nazario. It features music from Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def Official, and is part of a larger investigation on juveniles in solitary confinement.

By telling your own personal truth, you’re able to to break out of the boxes and stereotypes and show us, ‘Hey, this is who I really am. Take a good, hard look.’”

The Off/Page Project has a great interview with the one and only Josh Healey. Addressing everything from storytelling, comedy, and activism to censorship and jump shot skills, read the full interview on the Off/Page blog here
