American Prison Newspapers, 1800-2020: Voices from the Inside.
The first newspaper published within a prison by an incarcerated person was Forlorn Hope, in 1800. Since then more than 450 newspapers from U.S. prisons have been published. Some are still in publication today such as Angolite and the San Quentin News.
This collection brings together hundreds of these periodicals from across the US into one collection. Representing various institutions there is special attention on women-only institutions.
The collection is open access and can be accessed via the A-Z list of databases.
