Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison
Piper Kerman leads a riveting live webcast panel discussion on the Netflix original series based on her memoir. OSTNB tells the story of the lives of women affected by a dysfunctional justice system. On the broadest level, OITNB is most concerned with the complicated interactions between race, gender, poverty, sexuality, and discrimination within the criminal justice system. The show is wildly popular, drawing popular culture’s attentions to the issues of fairness, humaneness, and other constitutional concerns about our system of justice like never before.
