Incarcerated: Love In Lockdown

Incarcerated (1).png

/

Anita loves a good romantic story — especially when lovers prevail against all odds. There are a million reasons to give up on happily ever after when one or more people in a relationship are incarcerated. But for those who stay together despite prison walls, a special kind of connection is created, as we learn in the season two finale. | Support this show with a donation at wunc.org/give.

Meet the guests:

  • Monae and Adriel Alvarado share their one-of-a-kind love story — from meeting inside prison while they were both incarcerated and sending love notes while in solitary confinement to building a life together on the outside.
  • Sutina and Steven Green reflect on building a relationship and growing a family while Steven was serving a life sentence without parole in California.
  • Jenesee Green, Steven & Sutina's 17-year-old daughter, talks about growing up with an incarcerated father and what she's learned from her parents' love and relationship.
