Molonte Herman Wooden, born in 1984 and raised in Washington, DC, spent time in …


Molonte Herman Wooden, born in 1984 and raised in Washington, DC, spent time in the DC Jail complex on multiple occasions. (Jails, unlike prisons, are where people in the criminal justice system are held temporarily while they are tried or awaiting sentencing.) “When I was in DC Jail, my father came to visit me, and I felt like a caged animal because it was through a glass and I was not able to touch him, to give him a hug, or shake his hand to say ‘thank you’” Molonte says. “I had to blow kisses behind the glass and hand gesture ‘I love you.’ But I was grateful for him coming to visit me; he made my day. Jail is not meant for no one. Today I try to avoid any situation that may lead me back to incarceration.” Photo by @markisa8 and @gabrielabulisova as part of our takeover of the @smithsonianmagazine IG account this week. #everydayincarceration #criminaljustice #incarceration #victims #prison #reform #light #absence #reentry #IGtakeover #photooftheday #picoftheday #documentaryphotography #documentary #photojournalism #massincarceration #prisonphotography #washingtondc #washington #smithsonianmagazine #colorphotography #parents #prison #prisonstodayatesp #prisonstoday #smithsonian #photography
