Angola Prison, May 2018, Louisiana:
Once a year, inmates who graduate from the Malachi Dads program are reunited with their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews for a few hours during the Returning Hearts Celebration at the Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola Prison).
Each year, a selected group of students travel to Angola and are divided up into teams of three — one writer, photographer and videographer per group — to share stories of the reconciliation and hope that exists in what used to be America’s bloodiest prison.
In 2018, Kaitlynn had the opportunity to tell these stories as a writer.
