Drawing upon firsthand accounts and experiences of African American women, Dr. Hart-Johnson narrates the complex web of crisis, loss, separation, and resilience as she explores the lives of 20 women affected by a mate’s incarceration.

Louisville, KY, February 21, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Author Avon Hart-Johnson is proud to announce the recent release of her book "African American Women with Incarcerated Mates the Psychological and Social Impacts of Mass Imprisonment." Hart-Johnson’s book explores the lives of 20 African American women affected by a mate’s incarceration. The compelling book trailer for "African American Women with Incarcerated Mates the Psychological and Social Impacts of Mass Imprisonment" was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news.

About The Book
After four decades of mass incarceration in the U.S., the disproportionate number of black men in prisons has contributed to an epidemic of black women struggling to support fragile families. Yet the literature is scant on how African American women are affected by the imprisonment of their partners. Drawing on case studies and firsthand accounts, the author brings needed perspective to the political, economic and psychological challenges they face - including the experience of “Symbolic Imprisonment” or “serving time on the outside.”

Praise for “African American Women with Incarcerated Mates the Psychological and Social Impacts of Mass Imprisonment”: "Hart-Johnson's research and resulting theory sheds light on the suffering of the African American woman with an incarcerated partner. Practitioners who encounter clients who have incarcerated loved ones would be well-served to pick up this informative and eye-opening volume."- Christopher Zoukis, prison education advocate, author of "College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons."
