On April 22, Temple hosted a celebration of the creative talents of formerly and currently incarcerated artists and musicians. The event was a collaboration between Temple's chapter of Petey Greene and and FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Minimums). The panelists included Blak Rapp Madusa, Jimmy Dennis, and Luis 'Suave' Gonzalez, who reflected on the role of arts and mass incarceration, followed by a Q&A and live performances. Music, poetry, and interactive art pieces created by incarcerated artists in Pennsylvania were all included in the exhibition.
